Edward Smith, landlord of ther "NEW WEAVERS' ARMS,"
Carlisle Street, was summoned for selling drink during 
prohibited hours. 

It appears that at 11 o'clcok on the 1st October, PC's 
Charnley and Helm, from circumstances which aroused
their suspicions, followed the landlord into the cellar, 
and there found three men hid, and the landlord with a
gallon jug in his hand, which contained a quart of fresh-
drawn beer.

Fined 20 shillings and costs.
Preston Chronicle  7th October 1871
HULL & Sons   v   HALL and others
James Hull and Sons, Brewers, sued Stephen
Hall, Joseph Sumner, and Robert Geldard for
£24  17s. 9d., balance due on a promissary note
given by the defendants on 7/7/1884, for £63. 19s

Stephen Hall, at the time the promissary note was
 given, took the NEW WEAVERS' ARMS, public
house, and was at that time in want of the amount 
which the plaintiffs advanced him, the other defendants
being sureties.

On entering the public house he went on trading
with the plaintiffs for some time, and then left the house.

A verdict was given for the plaintiffs against all
the defendants.
