The Ferguson Fawsitt was named after two important local families.
The original license at the Ferguson Fawsitt was granted in 1866 when J.D. Ferguson brother of the rector, married wealthy heiress Miss. Eliza Fawsitt.
The original name of the pub was 'The Bay Horse' and the area now known as the 'Cocktail Bar' was originally the village blacksmith's shop which was in use until 1950. The Carvery area was the area the blacksmiths used to repair carriage wheels and shoe the horses.
