A number of the houses around the village green in Hutton Rudby have date stones from the 1700s
A booklet about the village by Alice Barrigan suggests the house dated 1745 was once a pub, possibly called the William IV, it still has a horse mounting step outside.
This stone names David & Everell Simpson – AD 1754
Nearby Mary Tunssall – AD 1755
I alwasy find it fascinating that most small villages usually contain buildings that pre-date events such as the creation of the USA.
