In 1824 Edward Pedder and another sold some land
to James Machell and his Trustees.

I believe that at some point between that date and 1863,
when he died, John Machell ran a beerhouse at 2 and 3
High Street

SERIOUS CHARGE AGAINST A LANDLORD
William Eccles, landlord of the PAINTERS' ARMS, 
High Street, was summoned for allowing gambling on
his premises, and three men named Wearing, Caffrey, 
and Ainsworth, were summoned for aiding and abetting.

P.C. Moss said that on Friday night, the 28th February, 
he, in company with two other officers, visited the
Painters' Arms, and there saw the four defendants sat
at a table with cards in their hands.

It was stated that this type of offence was on the increase
in Preston, and that it was desirable that it should be put
down. 

Eccles was fined 10 shillings plus costs, and the others
5 shillings each plus costs.
