According to Leonard Thompson in his book "Suffolk Coaching Days".

Joseph Wiggens was a retired coachdriver who drove the "Phenomena" coach from Norwich to Kings Lynn for 11 years. After his retirement in 1838 he moved to Bury and took The Dog which he later renamed The Eastern Counties Railroad Tavern (although I bet the regulars still called it The Dog!) He died in December 1843.
