    In 1792, Thomas Yeo kept the house, as an advertisement in the " Salisbury and Winchester Journal " for October 15th of that year shows. The advertisement runs, viz. —

    " Andrew Ivey, Wincanton, deceased. To be peremptorily sold by auction by J. Hoddinott, auctioneer, at the White Horse Inn. The fee simple and inheritance of the following lands situate in Wincanton, late the lands of Mr. Andrew Ivey, deceased. The George Inn, situate near the market place, now rented by Thomas Yeo, &c." A different advertisement appeared a week later with the following description : — " The George Inn being a stone built roomy house, with outhouses, large stable, garden, &c. Situate near
    to and very convenient for the market, now rented by Thomas Yeo as tenant at will.** From that time it has been used for the business of butcher. For many years, embracing three generations, the Oborn family lived there, but from 1877 it has been occupied by Mr. Lock. The house was greatly enlarged about the year 1848.  - Inns of the Parish to 1903 - George Sweetman.
