Eagle and Child, Halewood
Eagle and Child, Halewood
Situated in Church Road, Halewood, the Eagle and Child pub gained its name from Sir Thomas Latham (one of the Earls of Derby - the Stanley's) who in the 14th century had an illegitimate son, he is said to have place the child under a tree in which an eagle nested, and later whilst out walking with his wife 'found' and convinced his wife to adopt the child. Both eagle and child are part of the Earls of Derby coat of arms and is a common pub name in this area. An Inn has existed on this site since the late 17th Century and this public house and the nearby Derby Arms, are featured prominently on the Tithe Map of the area produced in 1843.
