Morning Advertiser 05 November 1863 :
The Grafton Arms, Grafton road, Seven Sisters road, Holloway has been built within the past few months, and from its position must inevitably reap the entire benefit of the enormous neighbourhood by which it is surrounded, as no other Licensed House will be permitted upon the estate. The premises, among other advantages, possess those of a coachhouse and stabling.
The Lease has about ninety years unexpired, at a ground rent of £30.
