By 1754 Robert Curson was the owner. He died that year, passing ownership to his wife Ann Curson who died 19.10.1757. Their son, Henry Curson then took possession ( died July 1759 aged 37 ).
Believed to be owned by Thomas Curson in 1763.

In 1798 Thomas Wordingham applied for a licence
on the behalf of John Thurger.

By October 1813 the house was owned by William Taylor.

Walter Salmon ran a small paraffin supply business from the outbuildings. Deliveries are believed to have been made by donkey and cart.

The house boasts a superb cellar, which includes a well.
Licensee Jack Whysall maintained a personal supply of Winter ``K'' Ale, brewed by S&P. A pin, not for sale, would be laid down and by June it is said to have matured into a `classic treacle '.

Landlord Alfred Foster also ran a seafood freezing business from the adjoining buildings. ``The first man to freeze whelks, exporting 6 tons a week......until supplies ran out by 1990's''.

House closed 1997 and planning permission granted April 1999 to convert into 2 dwelling houses.

This historic house thankfully reopened 01.09.2001 as a Freehouse.
