A report in the Ipswich Journal** on 02 Feb in 1861 states that :
Ipswich Police 31 Jan 1861: Reference in a stabbing case "Prisoner went to READ's Beerhouse, Ipswich, where he got a loaf of bread". Robert Sparkes was charged with stabbing Susan Bentinck. She was a married woman who was not aware if her husband was alive. She had been living with the prisoner at the Horse Shoes Inn, Curriers Lane, Ipswich. The landlady had given him notice to leave but Susan Bentinck had stayed on as a domestic servant. Sparkes was committed to trial.
Listed in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923, so evidently closed after 1923.
