The Boar's Head was the property of Sir John Fastolfe

Vide Stony Lane.

This inn Dr Rendle believes to indicate the site of the birthplace of John Harvard, founder of the Harvard University in the United States. Robert Harvard, his father, carried on the business of a butcher in 1607 in one of the shops exactly opposite to Boar's Head Court. These shops were taken down in 1829. --[R. and N., 115.]

The Ram's Head by the river, next St Olave's Church, is mentioned in the map of 1542. It was an ancient inn, and belonged to Sir John Fastolfe. Taylor, the water-poet, in 1630 refers to it in his rhyme thus:

"At Ram or Ram's Head be it known to all
Are wine predominant, and capitall
To set a horseman quite beside the saddle,
And make a footman's pericranium addle."

See Nos. 442, 463 and 473.
