A quick comment on the 1911 census listing for this pub on the Pub History page, I am related to the Mills/Batchelor family. Elizabeth Batchelor's maiden name was Mills and Henrietta Mills was her sister in law. "Reginald" Mills, her son was my grandfather, his name is actually Rignold not Reginald - actually Charles Rignold Mills. It appears correctly on the census form but most of the family history sites have it mis-transcribed. This is not unusual, even his death certificate is wrong. William Francis Batchelor was still licensee of the White Hart in 1936 when his wife died (National Probate Calendar). By 1940 William was living in Wolverhampton with one of his sons and I guess that he left the White Hart soon after his wife's death. *

The Mills family were also involved with the Bullington Cross, Bullington, Hampshire. Thomas Henry Mills, father of Elizabeth, was licensee there in 1871 and his father, also Thomas Henry may have been licensee before him, both were also blacksmiths. Members of the Monk family, related to the Mills may have been licensees at a later date. *
