Liverpool Mercury July 4th 1851

Yesterday the magistrates held a session in the Crown Court for the removal and transfer of licenses, magistrates, Messers J. HOLMES [Chairman], BOLTON, R. V. YATES, J. H. TURNER, EVANS, BOOTH, BEAN and R. GLADSTONE.

Mr SNOWBALL made an application on behalf of Samuel KENDRICK, for a removal from Chadwick St to Bond St. As it appeared the house was not in such a complete state as to admit the question of a license coming in a proper state before the magistrates, the application was withdrawn.

Mr SNOWBALL appeared for the removal of a license on behalf of Matthew COFFEE, from Wapping to Bennett St, Circus St. Mr COFFEE had kept houses in different parts of the town, and had always conducted himself in a creditable manner. He submitted a memorial in support of the application, signed by a number of persons in Christian St and the neighbourhood.. Mr DEWHURST said, he was instructed to oppose this application, as there was already a great number of public-houses in the neighbourhood. He presented a petition against the granting of a license and added that drunkenness prevailed to a great extent in the neighbourhood, more especially on Sunday mornings. After a consultation amongst the magistrates, the license was refused.

Elizabeth RATHBONE applied for a removal from Salisbury St to Everton Rd, during a conversation which took place amongst the magistrates Mr EVANS said, there had been hundreds of houses added in the neighbourhood where a licenses was asked for, and not only one was wanted in the vicinity but a score, the license was granted.

The application of Agnes ELLIS for the removal of a license from Sparling St to Springfield St was supported by Mr SNOWBALL. He stated that the applicant had been 28yrs in the business and was a person of excellent character. He submitted a memorial in favour of the application signed by a number of respectable persons in the neighbourhood. Mr DODD, Solicitor opposed the application and handed up to the bench a memorial in opposition. On the votes of the magistrates being taken, they were equal. The Chairman Mr J. HOLMES gave the casting vote against the application and it was, accordingly refused.

List of removals and transfers, applications granted except were otherwise stated.

Transfer and removal of licenses

A court was held on Thursday for the removal and transfer of licenses, before the Mayor Thomas LITTLEDALE Esq, Messers HOLT, J. H. TURNER, R. V. YATES and J. HOLMES.

An application was made by Mr John YATES Jnr on behalf of Mr G. SMITH to have a license removed from a premises in the Old Haymarket, which are to be taken down for public improvement to a house in Byrom St, a short distance from the applicants present premises. Mr YATES stated that there were no fewer than six public houses to come down on the south side of Shaw’s Brow and the Old Haymarket, and the occupants were naturally desirous to remove within a limited distance as possible. The magistrates agreed that the license should be transferred as soon as the house was put into proper order and repair.

Matthew COFFEE applied to have his license for a house in Wapping, which had been pulled down for dock improvements, removed to a premises in Crown St. Mr BREMNER who appeared for the applicant, said the applicant did not intend to keep the house, but he became answerable for all the requirements of the license. It is said a Mr ROBERTS was to keep the house and it appeared he had a license which he was applying to have transferred - application declined for the present.

Mr BREMNER applied on behalf of Mrs Ann CROPPER for the removal of a license for a house in Shaw’s Brow, taken down for the reason of the improvements now going on in the district to premises on the corner of Atherton St in Paradise St.

The application was similar to the previous one and it was intended that the license should be disposed of, a principle which he contended was recognised by the legislature. A protest against the application was handed in, there had been a previous application. The bench declined to grant the application.

William RICHARDSON applied to have a license transferred to him to a house opposite Gill St, market. An objection was taken by Mr PARSONS, solicitor who appeared for Thomas LYTHGOE, he claiming to be the lessee of the premises. It appeared LYTHGOE had no locus standi, the application was allowed.
