My family owned this public house in the 19th century. Their name was Mary and John T Hull, has anyone a history of this public house? I have visited in 'modern' times and walked Thrapston's roads just to feel the place. I hope someone can help.
My ancestors lived in Thrapston from the early 1800s to 1917. They were saddle and harness makers, does anyone have any pictures of the shop? I believe it was near to the King's public house.
