The name is a simple pastoral reference. In 1841 a document says that The Glaziers Arms was formerly the Foleshill Tavern. This should read the Graziers Arms

In 1864 William Jenning asked for a transfer of the license from Harriet merridew and the bench refused. In that year it became the Shamrock

The Packhorse also shared the same address, 5 Well Street. We cannot reconcile these two premises at present.
