I have been researching the history of the Old Blue Coat School in Thatcham. Between 1794 and 1915, 40 school boys had their annual dinner at the New Inn, virtually directly opposite the school. I have been working through the original School Accounts Books and each year there is a payment of £3 10 shillings for the dinner to the following names listed below. *

The accounts never refer to the New Inn, just the person being paid, but the list matches licensees, and gives a bit more detail in changes of owner/tenant.
Between 1794 and 1806 the entry is just for "Boy's Dinner", as is 1831 and 1832, and does not record the payee. The annual dinners stopped after 1915. *
