It then included the adjoining tenement called Muggs alias Princes - surrendered about 1619 to Barth Church - both now in the possession of rev Robt Watkinson - since he came into occupation he has pulled down the Tavern (which in 1575 was called The George altered to The Blue Boar in 1577 ) - One portion of the garden he has laid into the yard at the back of the stables of the Walker Trust property - on another part he has built a respectable cottage residence - and another parcel remains, used by mrs Watkinson as a school room - with an entrance from the street and a little garden at the back - there are chambers over and a good cellar beneath
