Samuel Meadows Dye married `an ardent Baptist Lady' which is perhaps why he leased the Inn to others from 1846. He was Tasburgh Parish Clerk for some time.
One of his sons, Alfred Dye, born 1851, was was put `in charge of the house' by the executors when Samuel died in May 1866, although he was under fifteen years of age at the time. He later became a Baptist Minister.
Another son, also Samuel, ran the TRADESMANS ARMS, Mulbarton.
