Notes: Renamed as the "King William IV" in 1835. Also known as "KW4". The source on British History Online (A History of the County of Middlesex) states that the "King's Head, mentioned from 1721 is probably identifiable with the Queen's Head sited on the Kinghall estate and described as much decayed in 1667", so of course that pub will have existed earlier.
