At the Brewster Sessions of 1859, the licence of Sampson Knight was withdrawn following complaints from Superintendent Heaton. The magistrates were told that the owner of the property was a poor widow whose only income was from the rent paid by the tenant (Knight), so they ordered the licence be transferred to her until she could find a new tenant to run the beerhouse. Sampson was later the keeper of the Brown Cow beerhouse in Meltham.
