On 2 Apr, 1627 he was licensed to keep a common ale-house In his dwelling - no unlawful games or evil rule. This license was renewed several times, the 10 Apr. l631 renewal reading common tippling house. Robert apparently died before 12 July l641, when a petition of the townfolk asked that five of the existing ale-houses be closed down to keep from impov¬erishing the village, that of Ann Pearepoynte, widow, being one of the three to remain. Ann Parpoynt was buried at Braughing in 1666. [STICKNEY]
