From the Census entry for the PRITCHARDs this pub was clearly in Whitecliff, (although there was a Traveller’s Rest at Stowe as well). The Gloucestershire Pubs site has an entry for it. I can’t post a direct link to it but pick Coleford Section 4 from this one.

British History confirms that it was known as the Traveller’s Rest until the 1830s and thereafter was called the Nag’s Head. The old name must have remained in use for the general location.

It’s marked as the Nag’s Head on this map,
