The Robin Hood Inn in what was formerly Madeley parish, now Ironbridge in the borough of Telford and Wrekin, is noted in the English Place-Name Society's first volume on Shropshire[1], referring to an 1849 tithe award. The latter, on inspection, turns out to have been drawn up in 1847 but received by the Tithe Commission in 1849. The plot, measuring 27 perches (682.91 m2), owned by Francis and John Yates, the occupier a John Bailey, was then described as "The Robin Hood Inn[:] Buildings & Garden". Bailey also rented from the same owners an adjacent stable occupying one half perch (12.65 m2).[2] The inn is currently known as Ye Olde Robin Hood Inn.
