N.B.  I'm not sure when, but one of the landlords 
of the Falcon Inn, evaded Customs Duty by
brewing beer in the bath, until he was caught
by the diligent officers of the Customs and Excise.
Preston Chronicle  16th August 1879
EDWARD HOTHERSALL, landlord of the Falcon Inn,
Adelphi Street, was summoned for allowing gaming on
his licensed premises.

It appeared that at 10.55pm on the night of the 8th
November, PC's Fairclough and Higginbottom went into
the defendant's house and found a number of men playing
"Nap" or "All Fours."

He was fined 20s and costs, but his licence wasn't endorsed.
