May historically have just been inside Stonham Aspall, but the current boundary leaves it inside Parva.
A report in the Bury & Norwich Post** on Jul-19 in 1892 when George & Angelina Markin were the landlord and landlady states that:
They had been in charge of the Brewers Arms at Stonham Parva for 22 years (1869-1891). There had never been a written agreement between the tenants and the owner, Edwin Popplewell Dawson, brewer, until 1889. By 1890 they had been issued with a notice to quit, and left October 1891, being replaced by George Wright. Their departure was far from smooth with Dawson suing the Markins for '34 11s 9d for dilapitation citing 84 seperate repairs. The Markins counter sued for '50 for damage to their garden (caused by Dawsons builders). The Court ruled that Dawson pay '15 compensation and the Markins '10 to each other in compesation.
