Felixstowe Ferry Sun Innhistorical era: date unknown
Richard Cobbold's novel "The History of Margaret Catchpole", based loosely on Catchpole's life, has her brother Edward staying at one point in the Sun Inn at Bawdsey Ferry (now known as Felixstowe Ferry). Whether this was an older name for one of the two other pubs documented here or a different one is unknown. Perhaps it was an older name for then Victoria, which would not have had that name in Catchpole's day if it had existed.
