A report in the Ipswich Journal** in Oct 1850 states that :

Mr C Bunn, applied to have the license for the King’s Arms to be transferred to him from a person named Roe, but as magistrates at Harleston had recently refused to renew his license for a house he had in that town it was decided to defer his application.

A report in the Ipswich Journal** in 1860 (Mar-17) when Mrs Spink was landlady states:

Mrs Spink identified Mary Taylor and James Day as a couple who had lodged at her house and had been there on the day William Brown was robbed of his purse. They were both found guilty and sentenced to 9 months hard labour.

A report in the Ipswich Journal** in Dec 1860 states that :
