Edward, Prince of Wales (1330 - 1376), was the eldest son of Edward III. He was known as the Black Prince because of the colour of his armour. His death of ill health at the early age of forty six was a distinct loss to the nation, his military skill coupled with humanity in victory having been much admired. The Royal Navy had several warships bearing his name, the first launched in 1650. The Black Prince is first referred to in Pigot 1828. In a will of 1837 Edward II Phillips left the Black Prince to his son, George Septimus Phillips. At that time it was occupied by C. Thomas. By the time of the 1919/20 Coventry Directory it was 'Ye Olde Black Prince'. By 1926 the premises had become a lodging house.
