ROSE AND CROWN, Friargate

ROSE AND CROWN
Friargate
*
MINE HOST:
1743          James Holcroft
*
Court Leet presentment, October 24th 1743:
Mr. James Holcroft for not repairing the Pump 
opposite the Rose and Crown, next Friargate Barrs, 
and also the Pump beyond Friargate Barrs, both
of which are very much out of repair, and if not
done in 10 days we amerce him in 20 shillings.
*
The "Rose and Crown" was a tavern. When the
presentment, above, was made, it was the property
of Alderman William Harrison.
-
Its position seems to have been a little south of Friargate Bars.
It is possible that it became, or was re-named the
"Crown and Thistle" which was on the crest of
Friargate Brow.
