Nothing has been discovered about the inn or tavern operated by John Sprytwell, a Dover commoner from 1570--1 and a jurat from 1584--5.

Performance History

Payments to Lord Mountjoy's Players in 1569--70, to the Queen's Players in 1571 and to unidentified minstrels at a supper for officials of the Court in 1581 suggest that Sprytwell's was an occasional performance venue.
