    Notes 
    • Kelly's directory of 1886 mentions John Howes, fishmonger on Pople Street - not sure which John!

      Also obtained by Simon Cains from the Wymondham Archive (obviously the Petty Sessions part, at least, refers to John Junior)
      Local newspapers of the period show :-
      Mr J Howes contributed £2 to the restoration of the Market Cross in 1863

      On May 18 1885 at Wymondham Petty Sessions (Magistrates Court) John Howes Fishmonger of Wymondham was charged with assaulting his wife Sarah Howes on July 2 1884. Convicted of Common Assault and sentenced to one month’s imprisonment with hard labour.

      Anna Howes wife of George Howes fishmonger is summoned by John Howes fishmonger for an assault at Wymondham on 27th Oct (no year). Cross summons Anna Howes -v- John Howes for assault at the same time & place. Both dismissed and to pay own costs.

      17/11/1863 John Howes charged with nuisance. Accumulation of horse manure. Wymondham Magistrates order him to remove it within 7 days and if not done then to pay 2/6d per day

      A number of Auction Particulars show :-

      18/1/1856 Auction Cottage in Town Green in occupation of Sarah Howes

      17/9/1824 Auction Cottage in Town Green in occupation of -- Howes

      18/12/1829 Auction Tenement occupied by John Howes

      14/9/1888 Auction Dwelling House in Pople St in occupation of George Howes

      15/8/1890 Auction Town Green in occupation of John Howes Jun. Fishmonger

      It seems all the properties (or they could be the same one) were rented by a Howes suggesting they were not that wealthy that they could afford to buy.
