I have a copy Will from 1689 by my 9th Great/Grandfather James Dearing (or Deering), bequeathing the Golden Lyon to his infant grandson Dearing Dansie, via a life interest to the testators daughter and son-in-law. James died shortly afterwards. Within 30 years, Dearing Dansie had moved full time to Castle Hedingham and I do not know what became of the familys interest in the pub after that. However, Dearings son Deering also became a victualler, as did his great grandson Crown Dansie and others in the family.from Ian Jones
The building has since been demolished.
