hours drinks at the Cricketers
This Cutting is from an 1885 copy of The Essex County Chronicle it reports
that our George was fined ten shillings plus eight shillings costs for
keeping his pub open late. The story has some humour.
The court record was scanned from the original court book. It says he
was prosecuted for keeping licensed premises open during prohibited hours.
Above is another old
picture of The Cricketers at Danbury. This photograph dates from about
1910 and shows the pub probably little changed from George's days. He
was landlord here with his wife Emily and daughter Christiana from March
1884 until late 1886 when his newly married daughter took over the tenancy
with her husband Thomas Langman
