An 1830 trade directory lists this as a tavern or public house in "Ruly lane", i.e. Rewley Lane, the proprietor an Elizabeth Bossom. An 1846 trade directory has the pub at Hythe Bridge Street.[1] The pub had not moved. Sometime between 1830 and 1846 Rewley Lane was renamed Hythe Bridge Street.[2]

Pub History lists information on publicans etc. for the years 1863 to 1903, [3] which can be supplemented by the Oxford History site[4] and Slater's Directory for 1850.[5] Pub History has the pub at 1 Rewley Road, but unless it moved there at some point, this is not correct.[6]
