The Hambling family owned the Crown Inn in 1891 and 1903. It was a licensed beer house with an annual rateable value of £17.0s.0d. Sophia Hambling was the owner in 1891 and she ran the Crown Inn free from brewery tie. In 1903 Walter L. Hambling is recorded as the owner but the lease had been sold to Henry Dredge.
