Applications for Spirit Licenses

John Davidson, Royal Standard Hotel, Redcar.

William Wilson, Princess Royal Hotel, Redcar.

Nathan Sturny, Alexandra Hotel, Redcar.


            Mr Faber next applied on behalf of John Davidson, of Redcar, who at present occupied the “Royal Standard” as a beer house. Several special testimonials of character were produced, dating from 1857. During the four years of occupancy there had not been one complaint against the house. Where people conducted their houses well under a beer license, it was desirable for the bench to grant a spirit licence, and thus obtain full control of the house. Applicant was called, and proved service of notices. Application refused.

Mr Fawcett applied for a spirit licence to the Alexandra Hotel, Redcar. Mr Hett objected on behalf of the railway company. Mr Fawcett said there was never any complaint against the house as a beer house, and what objection the railway company might have he could not understand. The company might say the same as/year, that there was a level crossing, but he contended that it was the company’s own fault for making one, and that his client should not be made to suffer for their neglect. Mr Oxley said that there were some rather questionable neighbours about this house. Applicant said that there were under notice of discharge. Application refused.

William Wilson, be a housekeeper, Princess Royal Hotel, Redcar made personal application for spirit licence to his house. Application refused.

Mr Peat, of Redcar applied for a licence to sell beer for consumption off the premises. Grunted
