Notes

5 March 1906

Old Cheese House consisted of bar which was divided into three compartments. There was also a parlour or smoking room at the back of the bar. There were three bedrooms and a kitchen upstairs.

The inn was believed to be used as a town order office for Mr Churchill. The Chief Constable observed that the landlord was a captain and was in the habit of going to sea.

Sarah Annie Smith said her husband was the holder of the licence which had been held for 9 years, but she ran the house by herself and could keep herself and two children out of the takings.
