According to the editors, many of whose remarks seem based on Thomas Hardy's Wessex (1913) by Herman Lea, "Revels Farm was once a posting-house, but is now a farmhouse. It suggested Revellers Inn in the story. It was for this inn that Tim and Suke and the wedding party were bound when Fitzpiers met them."
