Said to be in existence in 1796.
Name comes from a 18thC play, in which a messenger boy, acting for a pair
of lovers, is thrown into a well by a `wicked uncle'.
It is recorded that barmaid Sarah Hipkin was admired by a pair of fishermen, both of
whom worked on the fishing smack the ` Saucy Kate'. Jealousy got the better of Mordecai
Baxter and he threw his rival, Obadiah Rix overboard. Mr. Baxter later paid the `full
penalty for his crime'.
It was confirmed at a meeting of the Corporation, October 1850, that Messrs.
Everard & Co. had taken out a lease for 10 years, at the annual rent of £30.
The company had been in possession of the house `for many years' and had
been built by them at a ground rent to the Corporation of £4 per annum.
Morgans sales for 1960 were :-
