Became the MARINE TAVERN in the 1820's 

 

In 1797 a cutter, by the name of the BLACK JOKE, conveyed a message to Admiral Adam Duncan, that the Dutch fleet had put to sea. Duncan was fitting out his fleet at Gt. Yarmouth.
The Dutch were at the time supporting a planned French invasion of Ireland.
The Dutch fleet was intercepted on the 11th October 1797 off the Dutch coastal village of Camperduin.
The Battle of Camperdown was fought and won with Admiral Duncan leading one line of ships and Vice-Admiral Onslow leading another.
