A report in the Bury & Norwich Post** on Dec-28 in 1838 states that the pub was sold to John Cobbold as part of the Samuel Alexander's Brewery sale, the Wellington selling at £630.
The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Wellington's license was issued in 1853. Whether this was when it was first licensed or when it got a full (ie not just beer) license isn't clear, though the latter seems more probable.
The license was surrendered in October 1909. A letter From W Banks (on behalf of Cobbold & Co ) to F I W Wood esq. Clerk to the Justices, Woodbridge, gives the date of closure as 10th Oct 1909. Last landlady was Mrs Tuthill.
