c18611920OLD STAR
The star was originally a religious symbol, referring to the star of Bethlehem or to the Virgin Mary, one of whose titles is 'Star of the Sea' (Stella Maris). Since 1634 a six-pointed star also appeared in the arms of the Worshipful Company of Innholders, previously the guild of Innkeepers. The star as a pub name dates from the fifteenth century. In 1822-3 this was the DUKE OF WELLINGTON. In 1850 it is called just the 'STAR'. In 1920 this pub closed after receipt of compensation payment and in 1921 it was a private residence.
