It is always nice when I can cross reference a manuscript in Bowrey’s papers with an independent source.
Yesterday, I discussed a the arrears of rent for the King’s Head Inn at Southwark. Today, I have two documents also relating to the rent of the inn. The first is a receipt for the £19 rent Bowrey paid Peter Briggins. The other document is an entry in Peter Briggins’ diary recording his meeting with Bowrey to collect the rent.
It would appear that Bowrey was as late paying the rent to Briggins in 1708 as Gillots was paying Bowrey four years later.
