Folkestone

 

Only one instance of this establishment found so far. Peter Burville tells me that William's fathers trade was a carrier, so the name of the premises was probably connected.

The premises being a beer shop, probably never had an "on" license, but operated as an "off" license.

Further information from Jan Pedersen via Eamonn Rooney says the following:- "The 1851 census says William Burvill is living next door to the "Eagle" public house, the occupant of which is, as you would expect, registered as beerhouse keeper. Mr Burvill is listed next door and his occupation is Carrier, no mention of beer though. I have checked other earlier and later directories - no mention."

From the evidence of the inspector it appeared that on the 26th April he visited the defendant's house, and found twelve men and women sitting there, with jugs and glasses on the table.

The defendant admitted they were there, and that he could not get them out; he told them the consequences, but they said “We won't go, let the police turn us out”.

The magistrates told the defendant he was bound to keep his house clear, and they would fine him 20s. and costs, and if he was summoned there again, the full penalty of 5 would be inflicted.
