This is a very interesting addition. Is it possible that this
house had previously been known as the "Queen's Head Inn"?
The order for the "Bell's Weekly Advertiser" a sporting paper, was written locally, by or on behalf of the editor of the Preston Chronicle, Isaac Wilcockson.

It is, of course, possible, that there is a human error
involved.
