The 1861 Census locates this pub at Novia Scotia. An 1885 map locates Novia Scotia farm on Offton Road, called Bushey Ley Farm on the current OS map.
The 1886 OS map shows a (now gone) building close to our map location called "Hole in the Wall" - a clue?
Abraham Farthing is mentioned in an 1859 newspaper report placing him in nearby Lindsey.
