Historic Interest

1791 Universal British Directory lists the Excise Office at the Greyhound. A report in the Bury & Norwich Post** on Apr-17 in 1805 when Mr Matthams was the landlord states that : "An inquisition was under taken at Bradfield, by the Coroner for his Liberty on ___ Matthams, son of Mr Matthams, of the Greyhound Inn (Lavenham), who on returning from a local market was thrown from his horse, & killed on the spot." A report in the Suffolk Chronicle** on Apr-10 in 1813 states that : To be sold by Auction, early in the month of May: The Black Lion Inn - High Street, Lavenham. The Greyhound Inn - High Street, Lavenham ..with butcher's shop, slaughter house & numerous attached offices, an excellent brick built malting & 14 acres of arable & pasture land. NB The above estate will be sold in 4 lots. A second report in the Suffolk Chronicle** on Apr 17 in 1813 states that the occupier is Mr Thomas MATTLAM, & the site includes a storehouse capable of holding 2000 hogshead of beer. A report in the Ipswich Journal** on 08 Oct in 1823 states that : Samuel SKEET, late of the Swan Inn Lavenham, returns thanks for his 16 years residence there & (announces) that he has now removed to The Greyhound Inn, Lavenham Also listed as a posting house (in 1839) Building dates back to 1324 when it was first used as the town gaol.
