My husband's gg grandfather was Robert Nicholas Doughty who was Licensee of the Pub from 1879 until his death from complications of bronchitis in the Inn on 8th October 1885 from "cardiac syncope". His wife Elizabeth then held the Licence, until she retired and moved in with her son John and his family. Her eldest son William a shoemaker never married and he lived with his parents, until Elizabeth left the Pub in 1889. However, he also moved in with his brother John. Elizabeth Doughty (nee Burcham) died at the age of 77 in 1907. Elizabeth was the daughter of John Burcham, who held the licence for The Two Brewers in Damgate Street in Wymondham and also The Dove in Town Green in Norfolk. He also owned a Butcher shop. Elizabeth Doughty (nee Burcham), before her marriage to Robert Nicholas Doughty, helped her parents out in the Pubs. *

I have a description of the Doughty boys arriving at The George in 1879, with their parents and sister Elizabeth. This story was told by Arthur Doughty to his daughter Lottie. He also described the well out in the Courtyard and how they found in the cellar a large jar of brandied cherries, which they opened and demolished all the cherries. He also mentions Kate Cooper the housekeeper and Arthur said "We went to Kate for everything". *

Missing off the 1881 Census, is son Robert John Doughty (my husband's great grandfather born 1851 in Clenchworton in Norfolk), as he had immigrated to Australia, after marrying his first cousin Hannah Doughty. They settled in Albury and held the licence for "The Terminus Pub", Albury is on the New South Wales and Victorian border. Also, missing is John Doughty, who was born in 1850 in Tottenham, Middlesex in 1851, as he was a Naval Stocker and was on board the "Sea Horse" in Portsmouth Harbour. Four brothers followed Robert John Doughty to Australia, they were James born 1856 in Plumstead Kent, Henry Doughty b. 1864 Purbrook, Hampshire, Arthur Doughty b. 1867 Purbrook, Hampshire and Charles Doughty b. 1869 in Landport, Portsmouth. *
