including one where it ran between the Parish Church (now
the Minster) and the "EAGLE AND CHILD" public house.

BREWSTER SESSIONS
Mr. Blackhurst asked that the licence for the
LATHAM HOUSE,  which had been refused 
to Richard ALMOND, be given to the owner.

The Bench said they had decided not to give 
the licence to any person whose name was not
down on paper.

re -RICHARD ALMOND, Lathom House, 18 St. John's
Place.  The objection to the licence was that until recently,
Richard Almond had not lived at the house, but his mother
had, and she attended to and managed the business. The
house was licensed in Jane Almond's name in 1866, There
was a complaint that the house was frequented by prostitutes.

The Bench said that he was not a bona fide occupier, and 
therefore the licence could not be granted to him.
