EAGLE AND CHILD, Friargate

In the Preston Court Leet records for 1699 (the original - not Hewitson's transcription) there is

The psons for letting their Middings lye at or near before their respective doors at ffryergate end to the anoyance of the Kings publick high way & do order them to remove the same before the first of May next on paine of 6s. 8d. a peice. vizt.
Wm Tomlinson at Eagle & Child, John ffisher, John Hatch, John Jameson, John Helme, Henry Barnes junr, Hugh Gurnall, Hugh Swansey on at the Back of the house, John Green, Wm Tomlinson & James Kitchin in the same lane. 
 
So, it appears that there was an Eagle and Child somewhere in Friargate.

MINE HOST:
1699       Wm. Tomlinson
