Sir John Falstaff

I believe Hannah Jewhurst remarried in 1871 to Mr. Marley, probably Alfred who then took over as licensee, although the ages suggest that could have been his son.

The census of 1881 referred to this as the "John Barleycorn," and I don't know whether that was by mistake or if indeed it ever went under that name officially.

It looks like the pub is now (2018) operating as an antiques shop and Rolvenden Motor Museum, but still keeps the name of Falstaff in its name.
