This pub is one in the list of my "Project 2014."

As such I have found a picture of the pub, but to date have no other information. Local knowledge, further pictures, and licensee information would be appreciated.

I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

All emails are answered.

CASES AT THE COUNTY COURT.

Before Jamee 'Espinasse, Esq., Judge. June 4, 1859.

Sanumm v. Strachn.

Mr. H. Stephenson for defendant.

The plaintiff having been sworn, Mr. H. Stephenson asked him "if he believed that" to which the plaintiff replied in the affirmative and his Honour told Mr. Stephenson that if he had wished to raise such an objection he should have done it before the oath was taken. The plaintiff then gave his evidence, which was that he had supplied the defendant with beer for sale to the amount of 13 18.s 7d., and had served every barrel himself.

His Honour.:— If he had, that might make him liable to a penalty but would not affect his claim against the defendant.

Plaintiff.:— There might be a mistake in the date, but the beer was not served on Sunday.

Mr. Stephenson objected to four items of the account, and examined the defendant to shew that he had not had the goods charged on certain days, but failed to establish his defence to the satisfaction of his Honour who gave judgement for the plaintiff and ordered immediate payment of the amount claimed.
