Described in `History and Antiquities of Foulsham', published 1842
as located ...`till within the last ten or fifteen years, on the south side of the market-place, a clay house, roofed with thatch and having a projecting wooden porch, sure indications of considerable antiquity. This house, up to the close of the last century, was known by the sign of the KING'S HEAD, and was probably the most ancient of all the inns in the place. It was in the pulling down of this structure in order to make way for the range of new buildings which now occupy the site, that the copper token of Edward Benn, the mercer, was discovered.'
