Saracens Head, Street not known

To the Greek and Romans, a Saracen was a nomad of the Arabian desert. The word came to mean 'Arab' and then Moslem, especially with regard to the Crusades. Noble families whose members had taken part in the Crusades might include a saracen's head as part of their arms. In February and March 1656 warrants were issued against Mr. Wilcox of the Saracens Head for allowing tippling there. In 1715-16 Widow Scotton was paying a rent for the pub.
