Newmarket Croydon

Closed pre-1840

To be sold by auction by Thomas Foreman on Thu 15 Jan at 2 o' clock in the afternoon at the White Horse inn in Newmarket the following:

LOT V: A copyhold PH in Newmarket called the Croydon consisting of a kitchen, 2 parlours, 3 chambers, stabling for 12 horses, a good garden to the front and a small cottage adjoining.Ipswich Journal, Saturday January 3rd 1789

NOTE: the same sale also included several other pubs including the Newmarket White Horse, Waggon & Horses, Wheatsheaf, the Burwell Anchor, the Exning White Horse & the Ashley Plough, plus a Brewery (owned by Robert Bones).

The Newmarket Pubs website also has a listing from the Bury Free Press with the same advertisement, but on this one the pub's name appears to be "Corydon". At present we don't know which is correct.
