grid reference TM 421 499

The White Hart was at one time a posting house & mail contractor.

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the White Hart's license was issued in 1658. The license was allowed to lapse on December 31st 1910; the pub has since been demolished.

A deed of settlement dated 4th October, 1658 does not mention the property as an inn. In 1795, it was occupied by Thomas Moore & owned by William Harper of Trimley St Martin, from whom it passed to Rands James of Sudbourne for £340. A mortgage document of 30th March, 1795 names Rand James, Innkeeper and Elizabeth, his wife and William Goodman of Woodbridge, Gentleman. It refers to a Messuage or tenement, public house or inn... known by the name of the White Hart, late in the occupation of Thomas Moore…
