the Angel in 1552; in 1778 it has been "the principal Inn for more than a
century" ; in 1835 Queen Adelaide held a drawing room here. No 83 was the
coffee room and the rest of the inn extended eastwards on to the site of
the Examination schools but in 1828 No 84 was also part of the inn. Certain
repairs were done circa 1765 (Oxf Hist Soc LXIX (1916), 343). It ceased
to be an inn in 1866. See also ib XV (1889), 131; XXI (1892), 156; LVI
