    1811 - John Way. Census of that year.   - Inns of the Parish to 1903 - George Sweetman.

    Apparently Way was the last tenant who held a license in this house, for people to be "drunk on the premises." Mr. Melhuish, after this, kept a wine and spirit store here. He was followed by Mrs. John Goodfellow, who had a ladies' school. Some time in the thirties, Mr. George Russell, senr., opened a drapery shop, and called it " London House." After several other changes of tenants it still bears this name,   - Inns of the Parish to 1903 - George Sweetman.
