Notes: The address at 2 Greyhound Lane is listed as a "wine & spirit merchant" (with the same proprietor as the pub) in Post Office directories in 1921 and earlier, while the pub is named on intersecting Ellison Road, so the frontage to Greyhound Lane may have been the entrance to the off licence part of the premises. The premises listed as a hotel in the 1871 census is presumably the same premises.
