PUDDINGMOOR

 
for some surnames in the late 12th and early 13th centuries was the area of the town or village in which they lived. In Beccles only
Puddingmoor appears as a name derived from an area of the town, with the possible exception of Wilmo Bregge, who might have
lived in Bridge Street. There are seven names mentioning Puddingmoor:
 
Podymor, Alexandro de Podymor. They all paid six pence to the subsidy, the smallest sum in Beccles, but paid by 44% of the 205
listed in the town. (The largest sum paid in Beccles was 6 shillings and 5 pence) This suggests that Puddingmoor was a well
established area of the town in the early 14th century, but at least some of the property was not valuable.
 
Five people who lived in Puddingmoor, Adam Barkere, John Kyngesman, John Recher, John Lockere and Richard Sekedele were
threatened with a fine of twelve pence if they did not remove their dungheaps before the next court. Similarly John Caketone was
accused of obstructing the communal water course and John Red and Richard Wodebregge failed to repair the water course in or
outside their property. The final person who was in trouble in Puddingmoor was "the Rector of the Church of Beccles", J Atte Gate,
"who did not remove timber from the common river bank to the detriment of his neighbours." No doubt this problem occured at the
Parsonage which was situated opposite the bottom of the church steps.
 
Richard Coleler.
 
Puddingmoor to Thomas Falke. Richard Cutler's will survives. He asks to be buried in the churchyard of St. Michael's and leaves
money for a variety of causes: to St Michael's for tithes not paid, and for the fabric, the repair of St Peter's Church and the "Great
Bridge of Beccles and the Chapel of Blessed Mary there". This was probably the sort of small chapel by the wayside still to be seen
frequently in Roman Catholic countries of Europe, which were mostly destroyed in the 16th and 17th centuries in England.
 
faithful departed." This is the same Richard Wodebregg who was threatened with a fine years earlier for failing to repair the water
course. No doubt he was a neighbour in Puddingmoor.
 
part of which he left to his younger son "to enjoy the corner of the said tenement next to Thomas Falkys as far as my shop."
Perhaps the property was just round the corner from Old Market behind what is now Saltgate Antiques.

The earliest mention of Puddingmoor is to be found in the names of those paying the tax of Lay Subsidy in 1327. The basis

from: “Beccles Researches” p2ff
PUDDINGMOOR IN THE SECOND HALF OF THE 19th CENTURY:
Puddingmoor has been an interesting road to survey as it was so full of contrasts. From the census returns for 1851 and 1881 we
find great variation in income, size of family and employment, all in one street. In 1851 Henry Farr, an unmarried landed proprietor
whose father had been a successful brewer, lived comfortably with four servants to look after him. Just down the road in a room in
the Almshouse was Lydia Laws, a pauper widow receiving coal, blankets and money from the Feoffees. The largest family totalled
11 people, but the average in 1851 was 5. Thirty years later the largest household was 9 and the average just under 4. By then there
was a greater percentage of smaller families of just 2 or 3 persons. School attendance appears to have started at 3 years of age and
continued till 10 or so, with many youngsters at work by the age of 12.

In the records of the Medical Board and the Nuisance Committee of 1848/149 there are several references to a cholera epidemic in
the summer of 1849, during which several children of the family of William Laws died. So it is interesting to find a large Laws family
living in Puddingmoor in 1851 with a total of 7 children, aged from 23 down to 10 years followed by a gap and then a two-month old
baby. The fatalities in the cholera outbreak were almost certainly from this family. In the Committee book is recorded a payment of
25s ‘in lieu of a feather bed, two pillows, a bolster and cotton gown which were destroyed by order of the Committee’ to William
Laws, whose children had died of cholera.

In assessing the age range of Puddingmoor inhabitants some unexpected imbalances have been brought to light. In 1881 there was
a great number of young adults in their twenties, for which we can so far find no reason (see 1881 table). However, this would help
to  explain  the  smaller  family  size  in that year as many were probably fairly newly married with perhaps only one child. Most
inhabitants had been born locally, but three had come from the Cape of Good Hope, a couple of wives came from Devonport and
one young lady from the Channel Isles. The high proportion of seafarers living in the street would help to account for this.

Occupations  in  1851  included  general  and  agricultural  labourers,  watermen  and  associated  marine  trades,  servants,  and  an
assortment  of  crafts  and  trades  including  shoemakers,  a  blacksmith,  a  lime  burner  (there  was  a lime kiln [there were two] in
Puddingmoor) and a twine spinner. There was a similar mix of trades in 1881, but by then printing had arrived in Beccles and 13
Puddingmoor inhabitants were involved in the printing trade. One man worked on the railway and several were in the coaching and
carting businesses. Two local residents owned their own boats. A family of travelling musicians (parents with a child of 10) was
lodging in Puddingmoor on census night; perhaps they were performing in one of the frequent concerts held in the town. Although
most of those living in the street were not rich, two thirds of the mid-nineteenth century Puddingmoor householders qualified as
burgesses who could vote in borough council elections.
Sources:  Census returns for 1851 and 1881, trade directories, lists of burgesses in Rix Collection Division VI. vol. 3, lists of
Feoffees’s coal distribution, Nuisance Book for 1848/49.

Puddingmoor when she fell in the water.. Her mother had left the children playing at 2 Hungate
Lane and went to Mr Watson’s the chemist. A juryman asked if there was sufficient protection
against this sort of thing happening again. The Coroner was asked to write to the corporation.

JUVENILE BURGLARIES: Mr Holmes, shopkeeper, Ravensmere, had  a cash-box stolen
containing 37-10s; from Mr Hipperson’s house in Puddingmoor a gold & a metal watch were  
stolen; from a lock-up shop in Newmarket cigarettes were  stolen; a silver cigarette case was stolen  
from a private house. Two Beccles boys were  found with filed down keys. Boys remanded.

A DANGEROUS DOCK: Children were playing at the Dock near the back of Mr Hipperson,s  
premises in Puddingmoor and three of them fell in. Miss Marjorie Hipperson, in spite of a motor-boat
being in the way, dived in with her clothes on, and swimming under the ropes of the motor-boat  
rescued them from drowning. Ever since the dredger has removed the little bank that ran out at this
spot, there has been a drop of several feet and the children who paddle there do not know this. Some
years ago the Coroner asked if something could not be done to prevent children falling in and getting
drowned. The danger is greater now than it was then.

These were picturesque Cottages in a picturesque setting backing on to the River Waveney. There are many postcard views
including these buildings which are described as being “Old Beccles”.
Unfortunately their earlier history is lost because the Manor Books of Barsham Hall Manor are lost or have been destroyed. These
would catalogue the earlier ownership of the site.
The present building on the site was built in the 1950s or 1960s.

LAW: Edward Barkway, Landlord of the Pickerel, open at illegal hours
INQUEST on DEATH by DROWNING of Elijah Clarke, waterman.
Charles Clarke, Sailor of Beccles “On Thursday evening I started from Beccles on the Wherry of which
George Hawks is the Master.My brother myself & Mr Hawks were the only people on board. The Wherry
was loaded with barley & we left Geldeston at about six o’clock. The wind was North West blowing a
fresh breeze. We had the usual sail, reefed with one reef. Mr Hawks steered the Barge. We went on all
right as far the ‘Dip House’. We were going before the wind which was blowing very strong. My Brother
said to me ‘I’m going to see the fire’. This was in the aft part of the Barge. He stepped aft, on the plank-
way which was on a level with the water, & was very slippery with ice. Suddenly I heard a splash & on
looking round I saw my Brother in the water.
Mr Hawks threw him the the end of the Sheet, which would have reached him, but the Wherry was going
through the water five or six miles an hour. This was about half past six o’clock & moonlight. We had no
boat  with  the wherry. The water was level with the banks, being high tide. I pulled the sail down as
quickly as possible, but the wherry had got 400 or 500 yards from where my Brother fell into the water
before we stopped. We then got out the Quant, & went back ti try & find him. He appeared to me to keep
up between five & ten minutes before he sank. He could not swim. I can a little. Elijah was quite sober, & I
am sure he fell quite accidentally, & Mr Hawks could not have brought up the Wherry sooner than he did.
We could not find my Brother & went back to Beccles. I am a seaman & know nothing of the navigation
of Wherries.”

John Goffin of Beccles, labourer, at about 11 o’clock was called by Mr George Hawks, Master of the
wherry ‘Sarah Ann’ to go up the River to search for the body of Elijah Clarke. Mr Hawks went with him to
point out the place. They went about two miles up the River , as far as the ‘Dip House’, & then dragged
the River & in about an hour’s time found the body on the Suffolk side, six or seven yards from the shore.
They took the body of the deceased (whom witness knew well) to the Pickerel Inn. He was dressed in his
usual clothes.
The Jury after some hesitation, returned a verdict of “Accidental Death.”
BECCLES PETTY SESSIONS Friday---Before J.F. VINCENT, Esq., (chairman), the Rev R.C. DENNY, the
Mayor,  and  Dr  CROWFOOT.  Aggravated  Assault.---John  REYNOLDS,  waterman,  of  Beccles,  was
charged with assaulting Harriet SEYMOUR, wife of William SEYMOUR, hawker, on the 2nd September.
Mr  KENT  appeared  for  the  defendant.  William  SEYMOUR,  deposed:  I am a licensed hawker, and at
present reside at Beccles. On Saturday last I and my wife went to Lowestoft. We returned to Beccles
about half past eleven the same night. I took my horse to the Cross Keys to put it up while my wife went
to the "Pickerel," where we lodge. After I had put up my horse at the Cross Keys, I also went to the
"Pickerel." When I got into the house I saw REYNOLDS and his wife there. He asked me how I was, and
I said "quite well, I thank you." He then asked me why I did not pay the old man, meaning the landlord of
the house. I asked him what business that was of his. My wife came in the room just then, and Reynolds
got up from the chair on which he was sitting as if to rush at her, and she slapped him in the face. He then
rushed at her, and knocked her down and jumped on her body. Some persons then came and took him
away. My wife was not able to get upstairs alone afterwards. I helped her get up, and a woman named
BIRD assisted her into bed, which she was unable to leave until Tuesday afternoon, on account of the
injuries she received. Cross-examined by Mr KENT: I always use my wife well. She is my lawful wife. I
struck her about a fortnight ago, and gave her a black eye. The bruises on her legs and arms were caused
by REYNOLDS. I will swear that the bruises on my wife's limbs were not shown to persons a fortnight ago
by her. I did not throw my wife out of the cart coming from Lowestoft, nor did she fall out. My wife arrived
at the "Pickerel" before I did. Mr CLARKE the landlord of the "Pickerel" has been witness to several
rows between my wife and me. We have been staying at the "Pickerel" some time and have paid our rent.
Mr CLARKE has wished us to leave his house, for what reason I do not know. I have not asked the
defendant  to  compromise  the  case.  Both  myself  and  my  wife  were  quite  sober  at  the  time  of  the
occurrence.The surgeon who came to see my wife did not tell her that there was nothing the matter with
her but drunkenness. Sarah BIRD said: I am a licensed hawker, and live at present at the "Pickerel." I was
not present at the time of the alleged assault. I assisted to put Mrs SEYMOUR to bed on Saturday night,
and was present when the surgeon came to see her on Sunday morning. The woman's body was very
much bruised about the legs and arms.She was in great pain whilst I was in the room. I could not say
when the bruises were made. Harriet SEYMOUR deposed: I am the wife of William SEYMOUR, licensed
hawker. On Saturday the 2nd August, I went to Lowestoft with my husband; we did not return until very
late at night. My husband went to the Cross Keys to put up his horse, and I went to the "Pickerel,"
stopping at a grocer's shop to buy some things on the way. I went into the parlour and feeling very faint,
asked Mrs CLARKE, the landlady for a glass of water. I afterwards went to the kitchen; REYNOLDS, his
wife, and my husband were there. I heard REYNOLDS say to my husband, "Why don't you pay the old
man?" I asked him how he dared to insult my husband. He rose from the seat as if to strike me, but his
wife put her arm between us, and I struck him on the face. He then rushed at me, and caught me by the
hair of my head, and threw me down, falling on top of me. He was taken off, but ran at me again and
jumped on my body. I was picked up by my husband, and whilst he was supporting me, defendant rushed
at me again and tore my dress off. The garment now produced is the one I had on at the time; I was
afterwards  taken  upstairs  and  assisted  to  bed.  A  surgeon  came  and saw me in the morning; I have
suffered very much since the occurrence. I had a beating from my husband three weeks ago, but that had
nothing to do with the pain from which I suffered. REYNOLD's wife came to see me on Sunday evening,
and asked me to make it up, but I told her I must leave it to my husband. Cross-examined by Mr KENT; I
never  had  to  apply  to  a  magistrate  for  protection  from  my  husband.  My  husband  and  I  have  had
hundreds of rows since we have been together. The bruises on my limbs were caused by defendant. I had
a number of bruises on my legs and arms about three weeks ago. I did not fall out of the cart coming back
from Lowestoft, neither did my husband throw me out. I never told anyone that the bruises were caused
by my husband. If my husband struck me, I would strike him. We had some drink at Lowestoft. I will

swear that when the doctor came to see me he did not say that there was nothing the matter with me but
my drunkenness. Edward MAYHEW said: I am in the employ of Mr HADINGHAM, miller, of Beccles. On
Saturday night last I was in the "Pickerel" with REYNOLDS. SEYMOUR came in whilst we were there.
REYNOLDS passed some remark on SEYMOUR who told him to mind his own business. Mrs SEYMOUR
came into the room just then; she rushed at the defendant and seized him by the hair, and they both fell
down on the floor, REYNOLDS on top. I picked him up, and complainant and her husband went away
almost directly. REYNOLDS did not strike Mrs SEYMOUR at all and I did not see him tear her dress; I will
swear to this. I have often seen complainant and her husband quarrelling at the "Pickerel," and on those
occasions blows have been exchanged; and I have also frequently heard her complain to Mrs CLARKE of
injuries  caused  by  her  husband's  cruelty  towards  her.  By  the Bench: I did not see anything in Mrs
SEYMOUR's hand when she ran at the defendant. Robert CLARKE said: I am landlord of the "Pickerel." I
have been summoned to attend here as a witness, and I would have been here before but was not able to
come, I have not been told to stay away. REYNOLDS was at my house on Saturday last. SEYMOUR came
in while he was there, and his wife came in shortly after him. I did not hear REYNOLDS say anything to
the SEYMOURs. I told complainant in the passage that it was time to go to bed. Her husband was then
sitting on a form in the kitchen. Mrs SEYMOUR passed me to go into the kitchen. I did not hear any noise
in the kitchen after complainant passed me. I have often heard scuffling between complainant and her
husband.  I  did not hear anyone speak about Mrs SEYMOUR falling out of a cart. SEYMOUR sent a
message to REYNOLDS asking him to come to the "Pickerel" on Thursday, but he would not come. I
went with the SEYMOURs to REYNOLDS this morning, and he said he would not compromise the case
unless SEYMOUR paid all of his expenses. By the Bench: I was not in the room at the time of the row, and
I know nothing about it. After consulting for some time, the Bench addressed the defendant, saying had it
not been for the trivial assault the woman had made on him by hitting him in the face, they would have
fined him 20 Pounds, or in default, a long period of imprisonment; as it was, they made the small fine of 1
Pound, and 10 shillings and 6 Pence costs, or in default 14 days in Ipswich gaol. The money was paid.
ALLEGED DUCK STEALING, 
Robert Gosling, Beccles, labourer, was charged with having, on the 21st of July, stolen two live ducks, the
property of Robert Clark, of the Pickerel, Mr. Smith appeared for defendant.
The prosecutor, who gave his evidence in a somewhat incoherent manner, proved that he had ten ducks
safe when he went to bed at ten o’clock. He was called up about twelve by Noah Gray, [who lived at 11
Puddingmoor] and then missed five ducks, but the next morning he found two more in a neighbour’s
garden, and so had only lost three. About half-past five or six two ducks were brought to his house by
the police, which were his property. There was one old one – a black and white duck, and a young one -a
dark grey. The feathers produced were the feathers of the ducks. He valued them at 2s. 6d.
By Mr. Smith : Never got drunk, hadn’t money enough ; the ducks’ feathers produced were his; always
went to bed about ten. Had been robbed every year he had lived in the Pickerel. Knew it was 12 o’clock,
as any one else would, when the clock struck. Didn’t hear the clock strike. Didn’t see these ducks after
seven o’clock the night they were stolen; he didn’t sit up half the night as to watch his ducks.
Noah Gray, of Puddingmoor, Beccles, labourer, said: My house is on the opposite side of the way, a little
higher up than Clark’s, about 40 or 50 yards from it.  
Last Sunday night week I went to bed about 10 o’clock, and after I had been in bed a little while, I heard
somebody in the road, and in consequence of that, I looked out of the window. I saw two men standing
against  the  Pickerel  pales,  and  then  saw them go on to  the prosecutor’s premises. It was a bright
moonlight  night. When the men went into Clark’s premises I heard some fowls making a noise. I saw the
men come out of Clark’s premises, and one of these came past my  house. I don’t know who he was, he
appeared as if  he had a handkerchief on the ground and did something up in it. The next morning I went
to the spot, and  found a bunch of green onions with a single feather adhering to it. The two men then
joined company again and went towards the church, but came back and went his down Mr. Bellward’s
loke [lane]. I have seen the prisoner before, but I don’t know anything about him and have never been in
his company or spoken to him.
After I had seen this I went and called up Mr. Clark, it was about 12 o’clock. About four the next morning,
in consequence of what I was told, I went down to Bellward’s Quay and saw a boat, in which two ducks
were lying. At 12 o’clock, when I saw these men go on to Clark’s premises, another man was lying in the

dressed in a dark Guernsey  or coat and light trousers.
Cross examination by Mr. Smith : I heard the clock  strike 12 when I was looking out of my window; I live  
just opposite Tyrrell’s; the man who was lying in the road did not appear to he sober.
Samuel Bellward remembered the morning of the 22nd July. Got up about 4 o’clock, when he missed one
of his boats. Saw it lying on the Suffolk side of the river near the bathing place. Went after it and found a
man named Barrett in it with two ducks. Barrett said he did not know how either himself or the ducks came
there. Fastened the boat Barrett was in, to his boat, and was rowing down the river when Barrett jumped
out, and in doing so fell partially into the river. Fancied they were Clark’s ducks, and took them to him,
and said, pointing to Barrett who was coming down the wall, “There goes the man now.”
Mr Smith said he apprehended the case against his client could not proceed, as the evidence pointed to
another man in whose possession the ducks were found, as being the perpetrator of the robbery.
The Chairman said certainly no evidence had at present been given connecting the prisoner with the
robbery, but the case must go on.
By Mr Smith: The ducks had been killed by having their necks wrung.

PC William Peak said: I remember 21
the prisoner in various parts of the town in company with two other men. In consequence of information
received,  I  went to Clark’s house, and afterwards to prisoner’s. When I went into prisoner’s house I  
noticed his hands were stained with blood, and they looked as if the blood had been pressed between his
fingers, and I picked off his hand a small duck’s feather.
Prisoner  was  asked  to  account  for  this  feather  and  the  blood, and he made no reply. I produce the
garments prisoner wore that night – a dark coat and light trousers: they are marked with blood, and a
feather is still adhering to the trousers. On the way to the station, prisoner said, “Is Barrett locked up?”
had not said  a word about Barrett. The feathers produced were taken from prisoner’s clothing.
Police-constable Balaam spoke to going to prisoner’s house. He found the feather produced just inside
the house, and squeezed blood from it.
This was the case for the prosecution, and Mr Smith addressed the bench for the defence, contending
there was no evidence of identification as to the fowls being Clark’s property, or as to the prisoner being
one of the men who was seen to go on Clark’s premises.
The Bench did not consider there was sufficient evidence to warrant them in committing prisoner for trial,
and he was accordingly discharged. Barrett had not at present been apprehended.

Beccles Paper 6 Aug 

ALLEGED DUCK STEALING
Robert Gosling, Beccles, labourer, was charged with having, on the 21st of July, stolen two live ducks,
the property of Robert Clark, of the Pickerel, Mr. Smith appeared for defendant.
The prosecutor, who gave his evidence in a somewhat incoherent manner, proved that he had ten ducks
safe when he went to bed at ten o’clock. He was called up about twelve by Noah Gray, [who lived at 11
Puddingmmor] and then missed five ducks, but the next morning he found two more in a neighbour’s
garden, and so had only lost three. About half-past five or six two ducks were brought to his house by
the police, which were his property. There was one old one – a black and white duck, and a young one
-a dark grey. The feathers produced were the feathers of the ducks. He valued them at 2s. 6d. 
By Mr. Smith : Never got drunk, hadn’t money enough ; the ducks’ feathers produced were his; always
went to bed about ten. Had been robbed every year he had lived in the Pickerel. Knew it was 12 o’clock,
as any one else would, when the clock struck. Didn’t hear the clock strike. Didn’t see these ducks after
seven o’clock the night they were stolen; he didn’t sit up half the night as to watch his ducks.
Noah Gray, of Puddingmoor, Beccles, labourer, said: My house is on the opposite side of the way, a
little higher up than Clark’s, about 40 or 50 yards from it.  
Last Sunday night week I went to bed about 10 o’clock, and after I had been in bed a little while, I heard
somebody in the road, and in consequence of that, I looked out of the window. I saw two men standing  
against the Pickerel pales, and then saw them go on to  the prosecutor’s premises. It was a bright
moonlight  night. When the men went into Clark’s premises I heard some fowls making a noise. I saw
the men come out of Clark’s premises, and one of these came past my  house. I don’t know who he was,
he appeared as if  he had a handkerchief on the ground and did something up in it. The next morning I
went to the spot, and  found a bunch of green onions with a single feather adhering to it. The two men
then joined company again and went towards the church, but came back and went his down Mr.
Bellward’s loke [lane]. I have seen the prisoner before, but I don’t know anything about him and have
never been in his company or spoken to him.
After I had seen this I went and called up Mr. Clark, it was about 12 o’clock. About four the next
morning, in consequence of what I was told, I went down to Bellward’s Quay and saw a boat, in which
two ducks were lying. At 12 o’clock, when I saw these men go on to Clark’s premises, another man was
lying in the road asleep. The man who passed my house was a tallish man, walked  with a rolling gait,
and was dressed in a dark guernsey  or coat and light trousers.
Cross examination by Mr. Smith : I heard the clock  strike 12 when I was looking out of my window; I
live  just opposite Tyrrell’s; the man who was lying in the road did not appear to he sober.
Samuel Bellward remembered the morning of the 22nd July. Got up about 4 o’clock, when he missed
one of his boats. Saw it lying on the Suffolk side of the river near the bathing place. Went after it and
found a man named Barrett in it with two ducks. Barrett said he did not know how either himself or or
the ducks came there. Fastened the boat Barrett was in, to his boat, and was rowing down the river
when Barrett jumped out, and in doing so fell partially into the river. Fancied they were Clark’s ducks,
and took them to him, and said, pointing to Barrett who was coming down the wall, “There goes the
man now.”
Mr Smith said he apprehended the case against his client could not proceed, as the evidence pointed to
another man in whose possession the ducks were found, as being the perpetrator of the robbery.
The Chairman said certainly no evidence had at present been given connecting the prisoner with the
robbery, but the case must go on.

present, giving directions and personally doing all in their power to get the flames under.
Notwithstanding that there was abundance of help and that plenty of water was available from the river,  
it soon became evident that all attempts to save the warehouse (a weather-boarded and asphalt-roofed  
building, containing articles of almost every possible description), in which the fire originated, would be  
worse than useless. Accordingly, the efforts of the firemen and those who were present were directed to  
saving the dwelling-house of Mr. Tyrrell with the shop adjoining, together with their contents. In an in 
credibly short space of time these buildings were emptied of their contents, one of the fire-engines
meanwhile playing upon them to keep them cool, whilst the warehouse, in which the fire first broke out,  
was left to its fate, and was quickly being consumed. The rapidity with which the flames spread was  
something unprecedented, and notwithstanding the most strenuous efforts, it was found impossible to  
prevent the flames spreading to the shop, and dwelling-house, all the woodwork of which was  
consumed, merely the roofs and walls being left standing. fortunately, however, the flames were
prevented spreading beyond the property of Mr. Tyrrell, although the adjoining property was very much
damaged by the quantity of water that was obliged to be plentifully bestowed upon them. In a little more  
than an hour from the time of the commencement of the fire, the flames were well under control, and all  
danger of their spreading further was at an end, but it was of course necessary to keep the engines  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

which were heard pealing forth from the church tower. On inquiry, it was found that a fire had broken
out in the warehouse of Mr. Jeremiah Tyrrell, Pudding-moor, who is well known as a general furniture
dealer and broker. In as short a time as possible the fire engines were on the spot, as were also the
police,  under  the  command  of  Superintendent  Gobbett  and  Inspector  Cole,  and  besides  these, the
(T. A. Laws, Esq.). the Town Surveyor (Mr. G. Fenn), and other of the borough officials were also

 
 
 

 
 

playing upon the debris
Although the damage sustained is very considerable, it is nothing to what might have been the case.
From what has since transpired, it seems that in a box beneath the shop, to which we have said the
flames extended, and all the woodwork of which was burnt, were stored no less than 200 cartridges, and
had these exploded (and it is marvellous they did not, as they were in close proximity to the flames), the
results must have been most disastrous, probably both to life and property. Providentially, no such
 
 
Tyrell is insured to the extent of 510. The total value of the premises and stock consumed is estimated
at upwards of 1,159.
We cannot conclude our report without a word of praise to all those who were present for the energetic
manner in which they endeavoured to get the command of the flames, and for their praiseworthy efforts
in saving the property in danger. [The property destroyed was number 40 Puddingmoor]

for some time longer.

serious catastrophe occurred, and by 11 o’clock all further need of the fire engines was at an
shortly after the premises were left in charge of the police. The cause of the fire is unknown,

There is a drawing of “Bradnum’s House” by SW Rix in the Rix Collection: Geographical Vol 1 page 202, which is now in the
Lowestoft Record Office.

This  property  was  not  owned  by  the Manor of Beccles, nor does it seem to have been owned by the Manor of Rosehall &
Ashmans. It is therefore difficult to trace further back than 1805 with any certainty.

Beccles Paper 12 Dec 

CHILD’S FATAL ACCIDENT: Edward Newton, aged 10, of 3 Rook’s Lane, son of Samuel Newton,  
killed in Hungate. With Bertie White, aged 13, of 1 Puddingmoor, jumped on the coupling of the back
truck being pulled by Mr Rose’s traction engine as it was passing through Exchange Square.  As he
jumped or fell off the coupling his coat caught in the wheel and he was dragged underneath and the
wheel passed over him, killing him.
William Poll, carman of 1 Newgate, said he was on the traction engine loaded with corn and cake
on the way to Raydon. He noticed a number of children running beside the trucks & called out to
the children to keep away. Arthur Gorham, of  Swine’s Green, was driving the engine. The Coroner
stated that the driver was not to blame. A juror said that the schoolmasters cautioned their children
yesterday.

known as the “Hole in the Wall”. The house has only two rooms, one a wash house and the other the living room. The living room
is about six yards square, the other room is about three. In each there is a bed. There are no upper rooms. Seven people sleep in the
house, viz: defendant & her brother-in-law, a boy aged 16 years of age, one about 10, another about 7, a little girl a year and a half
old, and a baby.
Mr AG Love, Inspector of Nuisances, said he had served notices on defendant, who had repeatedly promised to get out some of
the children, but she had not done so.
Defendant said that the oldest boy was going to sleep out after this. Her children enjoyed excellent health while living there. One
boy particularly weak before, was now quite jolly. It was her wish to get another house, but she could not get one.
The Bench made an order that only one adult and four children under the age of 16 should sleep in the  house.
