Robert Matthews applied for a licence for `a house just past the Cemetery on Earlham Road' on Tuesday 4th September 1860.
Application refused since he had previously been summoned for a violent assault on a female and considered by the magistrates to be a very unfit person.

New licence awarded to Robert Yeomans 2nd September 1861.

First found by name in 1863.

Closed January 4th 1997 and converted to housing.
