Sir John Franklin the explorer spent his last night at the White Hart before setting
off on 19 June 1845 to find the north-west passage, a trip from which he never
returned. In 1661 the White Hart was connected with a notorious murder of a prince
of Transylvania by Isaac Jacob and Camirus Kargagi. They drove from Gads Hill
the scene of the crime to the White Hart, then known as the Kings Head in their
master's carriage but were caught here and later hung.
