Red Lion, Boreham

13th May 2001

"The Inn known as the "Red Lion", Boreham, Essex, was built during the reign of Henry VII, in the year 1495. When first built, the inn was a farmhouse forming part of a considerable estate. In the year 1578 the house was purchased by Septimus Mallet, who is described as a farmer and hop grower of the parish of Hatfield. Shortly after buying the house, a licence was granted to Mallet, and the house became a registered "Ale House", licensed to sell ales and ciders only. In 1583, a licence was granted to sell distilled gin and other spirits, and the sign of the "Red Lion" hung. Many inkeepers were small farmers, and continued to farm the lands surrounding their inns, and such was the case with the "Red Lion" whose extensive lands were farmed right up to the early 20th century.

We are indebted to Vic and Bertha McNamara of the "Red Lion", Main Road, Boreham, for the information from which the above has been compiled.
