Boars Head Lane was the name for the part of what's now Austin Street, which runs between Bell Lane and Stoke Street.

The 1909 Ipswich Rates book lists the pub at 2 Austin Street. The 1891 & 1901 censuses also list the pub at 2 Austin Street. It's also listed variously in St Mary Stoke in 1830, at Whip Street in 1839 and in Bell Lane in 1844 & 1855.

After twenty years I have tracked down my grandfather's birth place. He was born in the Boars Head at Ipswich on the 27 Dec 1875. Needless to say family are very impressed he was born in pub…
