Your residents list includes Abraham Cousens. Whilst spellings varied at that time, the more usual spelling, Cousins, appears in the later entries. In fact, Abraham Cousins was the father of George Cousins, who in turn was the father of E G "Dick" Cousins, my grandfather. The Eight Bells was therefore held by three generations of Cousins. ****
