The Saracens Head

NAME SARACENS HEAD
ADDRESS Not known

To the Greek and Romans, a Saracen was a nomad of the Arabian desert. The word came to mean ' Arab ' and then Moslem, especially with regard to the Crusades. Noble families whose members had taken part in the Crusades might include a saracen's head as part of their arms.

In February and March 1656 warrants were issued against Mr. Wilcox of the Saracens Head for allowing tippling there. In 1715 - 16 Widow Scotton was paying a rent for the pub.

Known Licensees are;
1715 - 1716 Widow Scotton
