1867: Aldeburgh – Petty Sessions, Sept. 28

[Before Capt. James and H. L. Freeman, Esq.]

The renewal of licenses was adjourned three weeks ago until this morning. Beside the renewal of the licenses of the old houses, there was an application for a new license for Handel’s Hotel, which was opposed by Mr. R. R. Hill, for the Aldeburgh Hotel Company. The license was supported by Mr. R. L. Mayhew, of Saxmundham. After a short discussion, the Magistrates granted the license.

Thomas Haken, 13, Henry Vincent, 13, and John Wink, 10, were charged by p.c. Hammond with stealing a quantity of pears, the property of Newson Garrett, Esq. After a severe reprimand from the Magistrates, they were discharged.
