Robert Christy innholder of Doggeshead was recorded as a butcher in 1687. "He married three times, his second wife being Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas and Ann Wheeler. Robert and Elizabeth were married in 1696 but she died in 1698. However Elizabeth's brother Radulph or Ralph was victualler at the Doggeshead by 1701. so the Doggeshead was very much a family concern at the turn of the century. Robert Christy senior died in 1730, still a butcher by trade, but leaving the Doggeshead to his son, another Robert (1688-1731) also a butcher and innkeeper. At this time some land in Raycroft was attached to the inn. Since the son followed his father to the grave within one year, we have a third Robert Christy as the owner of the Doggeshead in 1731 with his mother Ann. Robert the third left the village and sold his Hormead estate to two different buyers in 1734 and 1736. "
