    ABBERTON IN THE 19TH CENTURY: Notes from the Vestry Minute Book BY LEONARD H. GANT (first published 27th December 1941) A resolution was recorded in 1870 to the effect that baking and sale of bread known to be under weight was not only unjustifiable, but contrary to Act of Parliament, and that this warning, if unheeded, would lead the offending bakers into trouble. The curate identified himself with this matter and his signature appears at the foot of the minute. Many years later the Church Vestry discussed the advisability of opposing the application made by "Abberton gentry" for permission to open a Beer House in the Parish, a matter entirely outside the practical authority of the meeting, but nevertheless of some importance from the churchman’s moral viewpoint. This Resolution, quite unwittingly, no doubt, paid tribute to the host of the public house then existing, for it concluded: "It was generally thought that the Abberton Lion was quite sufficient for all the wants of the parish." The Rector was requested, however, to address a memorial to the Licensing Magistrates containing the objection and asking for a refusal to the application. The "Lion" inn, though situated in the village is actually in the adjoining parish of Langenhoe, and this may have influenced the ultimate decision of the Magistrates, who refused the application for another Beer House, but granted an off-licence to a tradesman living and carrying on business within the parish - a condition still existing at Abberton. **
