The Silver Lion in West Street Lilley was run by James Pates, by trade a wheelwright and carpenter, from 1855 until his death in 1885. At that time it was owned by John and then from 1868 Colonel George Sowerby of Lilley Manor and Putteridge Bury along with the Sowerby Arms and the Beer House at Mangrove (Lilley). A tragic event happened in 1888 when George was killed by an Egyptian stag in Putteridge Park. The Silver Lion was the crest of the Sowerby family who were originally wealthy merchants from Hatton Garden. ***
