    Has been for many years one of the principal Inns of the town ; probably so named in honour of the Churchey family. It formerly bore the royal arms because the body of the Duke of Sussex once lay there, and Queen Victoria as a child spent a night there. On the front, too, was painted " Inland Revenue Office.*' 1743 is the year in which I find the first reference to it in the parish books.
    In 1760, a Mr. Wm. Way advertised it to be let as 'A new built house.'

    In 1780, John Thorne kept it.

    In 1783, "Assembly held there every Thursday nearest the full moon.

    In 1797, James Thome advertised it as " Built within a few years." (37 years is a trifle !)

    In 1801, Thomas Moore was living there.

    In 1803, James Lintern died there, (see his epitaph under the yew tree in the churchyard.) His wife Elizabeth afterwards carried on the business, at least till 1808. She died in 1812.

    In 1810, John Horwood was there. His widow succeeded him.

    In 1820, it was offered to let or for sale.

    In 1824, John Albin Baily was in possession and remained until May 8th, 1872, when Mr. Thomas Sherring entered. He dying there, Mrs. Sherring carried on the business for some years till
