Built 1720 - 1737.

In December 1778 a Carriage set out from the KINGS HEAD, Houghton on Tuesday 22nd December and again on the 29th December with the intent of delivering game and parcels to London. It would also collect from, or deliver to The Swan at Massingham.

Known as the NEW INN ( from rebuild?) to at least 1838.

Found as the KINGS HEAD in White's 1836 directory.

Six Post Horses, a Light Post Chaise, Double Harness, Bridles, and part of the household furniture, the property of Mr. Bidwell, were offered for sale by auction Wednesday 4th October 1837, since he was about to decline Inn-keeping.

October 1837 - Thomas Hebgin advised the Nobility, Gentry and the Public that in consequence of the Houghton NEW INN being given up, he would in future Let Post Horses and Chaises from the KINGS HEAD, Gt. Bircham.

All of the valuable modern Household Furniture of the late James Carr were to be sold by auction, on the premises, on Tuesday 19th June 1838 and the following day.
The sale included Beds, tables, chairs, mahogany night commode, mahogany sofa, card tables, Brussels carpet, hearth rug, table covers, ottoman, earthenware, china, brewing utensils, four-year-old Brown Horse, gig with lamps, harness, donkey cart, etc, etc.

Became Hall Farm by 1845
