These premises have been known by different names during their history:FROMTONAME
1863c1868DERBY ARMS
Derby Lane C1905 Presumably the name came from Derby Lane, but there was an Earl of Derby. Earl of Derby is a title in the Peerage of England. The title was first adopted by Robert de Ferrers, 1st Earl of Derby under a creation of 1139. It continued with the Ferrers family until the 6th Earl forfeited his property toward the end of the reign of Henry III and died in 1279. Most of the Ferrers property and, by a creation in 1337, the Derby title, were then held by the family of Henry III. The title merged in the Crown upon Henry IV's accession to the throne. This pub was previously the BLACKAMOORS HEAD and is first mentioned as the DERBY ARMS in a directory of 1863. Around 1868 it was demolished to make way for the Gulson Library.
