ROBERT HODGSON, of the "TOM BOWLING"
off Savoy Street, was objected to, on the grounds
of non-residence. A person holding a licence for the
sale of beer should actually reside upon the premises
for which the licence was granted.

Hodgson said he had made arrangements to reside 
on the premises. Formerly the house was not large
enough for the entire family, but now the owner of
the property had arranged to increase it by adding 
the adjoining house. Under the new arrangement
he would pay £26 per year, and would be the actual
resident/
The Magistrates refused the licence.
