Hawthorn Tree, Hearsall Common

The name is a heraldic reference to the arms of Henry VII. Aslo the Romans considered that a hawthorn bush would act as a protection against scurvy. They placed hawthorn leaves in the cradles of their newly-born babies. This pub stood at the bottom of Hearsall Common, just below the Beech Wood from which the present Beechwood Avenue takes its name. In 1833 Joseph White, a regular at the pub, had his customary drink in the Hawthorn Tree, then went out to the Beech Wood and committed suicide. Surely the pub can't have been that bad! The inquest was held at the Hawthorn Tree, his local.
