Notes: There is a "Roe Buck Inn" named as a courtyard coming off Kent St (later Tabard St) on Rocque's 1746 map of London near to the present site, and a Sun Fire Office insurance record from 1792 giving the address as Kent St, so it may possibly have originally been sited there, just to the north-east of the present site.
