Alexander Finnie bought the Raleigh Tavern in Williamsburg in 1749 and sold it in 1752 but continued, at least intermittently, to be a tavern keeper in the town until his death in 1769. When GW was in Williamsburg in Oct. 1754, he dined at “Finnies”, spending 5s. 6d. on October 23. A few days later, on October 30, GW recorded that he spent £5. 9s. 6d.
