In December 1777 my 5th great grandfather Uriah HUDDIBULL wrote in his his will :

"...last will and testament of Uriah Huddibull at the sign of The Hare at Hoxton....that the lease and goodwill shall be sold in the space of six weeks after my death..." *

Uriah died in 1778 and it would seem that the lease was bought by his son-in-law Isaac FARR (who married Uriah's daughter Sarah) because in Isaac's will in 1811 he bequeaths both The Hare and The Green Man to his wife Sarah FARR. *

In Sarah FARR's will, dated 14 June 1837, she appears to bequeath The Hare to her daughter Elizabeth (and on her death to son Isaac I think).
The fate of The Green Man is a bit more complicated. Apparently her late husband Isaac had leased it to someone called John BOO**? (unreadable) and the lease expires on 24 June 1837 (is this why she is writing her will on 14 June?). It looks like she leaves the lease jointly to her son-in-law Robert MOLLETT (married to her daughter Lucy) and her daughter Martha FARR. *
