North Norfolk Licenses

A meeting of the License Commission of Norfolk was held on Monday 23 Apr 1900, for the purpose of considering applications for tavern and shop licenses for the ensuing license year. The following licenses were granted:

Applicant Business  Location
Mrs. Ann Battersby  Battersby House Simcoe
Armstrong Blakely Tavern Delhi
Leonard Brady The Melbourne Simcoe
H. J. Cutting Shop Simcoe
Quinton H. Fick Norfolk House Simcoe
Charles Firth The Bodega Simcoe
Luke Foley Tavern LaSalette
Wm. Gould Royal Hotel Simcoe
John Hawthorne Queen's Hotel Simcoe
Theodore House Tavern Windham
H. G. Ogg Tavern Waterford
B. W. Power Tavern Delhi
John Sutton Shop Simcoe
Elsie Teeter Tavern Waterford
J. H. Williams Tavern Waterford
Applications held over to 1 May 1900 session:
Oliver Crossett
John Jackson
Bert Tribe
Daniel Macumber

The Crossett case is exciting much interest in 
Middleton Township, where the tavern is situated. 
There was a petition signed by some 150 people 
that the license should not be issued. 
On the other hand, Crossett is backed by some of 
the most influential people of his neighborhood. 
G. W. Wells, Q.C., appeared for the petitioners 
and W. A. Dowler for Crossett. 
A lot of witnesses were heard, but the Board laid 
its final decision over until May.
