Spread Eagle, Street not known, Stoke
|This pub is mentioned in newspaper advertisements twice, in 1778 and 1835.
An eagle with its wings spread out was established as an emblem by the Romans. It is associated with many countries including Austria, Germany, Russia, Spain and France and with the bald eagle, U.S.A. British noble families adopted the spread eagle in their coats of arms after service in such countries, e.g. Viscount Montague in Hampshire and the Hoares in Wiltshire.|
