Crown & Dolphin



The Crown & Dolphin was situated at 4 Kneesworth Street.
My G-Grandfather, Francis [Frank] Chinn after retiring from the London Police force moved to Royston, Hertfordshire with his family and became proprietor of this The Crown and Dolphin is believed to have originally formed part of the old Royal Buildings which would have stretched the complete length of Kneesworth Street from the cross to the green. The buildings themselves dated from the 1600's. After Frank's death in 1902 his widow, Anne Maria, operated the pub until 1904. The inn was demolished in the early 1920's and by the 1970's was occupied by a shop known as "Kirkhams" adjoining Lloyds Bank Ltd.
