I am terribly sorry to have left your reply unanswered, unfortunately I've been very busy with my MA and had to drop my research. Thankfully the MA is nearly at an end so I can start again. It would be really interesting to hear about what you know about the black boy. I've just started trying to locate the court papers. I've currently got the plans for the building when all the alterations were made and a inventory from the late 30's. Would be interesting to hear about the early history of the building as records only seem to go so far, suggesting the building might have had other uses in the distant past.

I am interested to know who Melonhead is.  You must be the child of one of my cousins,
Jim, Joan or Derek Westley.  Any information of The Black Boy Inn I will answer if you tell me
what you need.  I have a picture of Sarah Cowley, my grandmother outside the Inn and also
my Grandfather James Cowley in his Morris Cowley treasured car.
