William IV (1765-1837) was the third son of George III. He joined the Royal Navy as a midshipman in 1779 and was soon a captain. He frequently disobeyed the orders of his superiors and violated the rules of discipline, so he was not allowed to command a ship. He was nevertheless promoted by 1801 to the rank of Admiral of the Fleet. The Royal Sailor is first mentioned in Kelly's Directory of 1863 and last mentioned in the Coventry herald and Observer of 1872. This pub is thought to have become the CRICKETERS ARMS.
