First and Last

 No 1 Chew Hill was an old New ale house and some of the facilities were still in situ when the house was modernised according to Mrs Sparks who lives nearby.  This may have ben the New Inn but  the 1839 tithe map and the 1848 sale details give no indication that there was a pub in what was Kingsmill land.
There is no reference to the First and Last or the New Inn  in the churchwarden accounts or poor law records.  The 1740 and 1766 maps and associated ledgers do not mention a pub called the First and Last either.
The 1794 map shows the building was at the top of Chew Hill  on Chew Down was still there but the Waldegrave records do not identify who occupied that building at that time.
