I've been browsing through the Court Rolls of Little Stambridge, Essex and have found mention of the Cherry Tree Inn at several sessions of the manor court.

 On 12th April 1793, the court roll records the surrender by John Harriott (he who invented the Thames River Police, I believe) of about one acre of land upon which the Cherry Tree 'hath been lately erected' into the hands of the Thomas Cattell, victualler, who was already in occupation. It looks as if John Harriott came into possession of some 6 acres of land called Winters along with some buildings on it in February 1792 and then in April 1793 hived off an acre with the Cherry Tree on it.
On 2nd March 1795, Thomas Cattell and his wife Ann in turn surrendered the acre to William Blyth, a dredgerman. It is not recorded whether Thomas Cattell continued to run the inn.

It looks as if the Cherry Tree Inn was first built around 1793 and that Thomas and Ann Cattell were the innkeepers during at least the period 1793 to 1795.
