The Perlustration of Great Yarmouth, published in 1872, records that the Feathers, standing by the Market Gate, had been known for three centuries. It had been enlarged in 1581. Writing in 1619, Dean Davies recorded that he went to the Feathers with Doctor Hudson who gave him a bottle of liquid laudanum and returned a sermon which he had lent him. In 1673 King Charles II had been entertained here, along with his soldiers and servants.
Said to be the last house (in Yarmouth) where `cocking' was held.

Mr. Newstead, late of the Queens Head, Acle, informed his friends and the public in general that he had taken the Feathers Inn & Livery Stables and humbly solicited their continuance of patronage....... 13th July 1816
