    The Boars Head in Braintree Essex (with an orchard in occupation of Thomas Bruty) was re-leased on 29th Sept 1842 by Francis de L'Horme de L'Ile Povey . He had inherited the lease from his first wife (deceased 1st June 1840) Mary Ann Povey nee Hattersley. In the 1871 census Francis is resident at the pub and describes himself as publican. However this was a sideline as his real occupation was Undertaker in Westminster, London. *+
