    It was managed by my Great-Grandfather until 1923, his name was William Osborne and was born in Roydon, Essex. He became barman in 1901 and was later promoted to manage the whole pub on behalf of Webbs & Co from at least 1911 (probably earlier but this is the earliest documented date I can find so far & is confirmed on the 1911 census) until around 1923. Why he stopped working there is rather a mystery; as he went from a poor farm labourers son in 1900 to EXCEEDINGLY stinking rich within a few years working at the pub then died a very poor man in 1925. *
