Have you ever run a Pub? You can add your pub history to the UK pub history site. You can contact the pub history site via my email : Kevan. There are over 10,500 images on the site and more than 47,000 pages of pub history - these numbers increase every day as I add new pub history research. The pub history site has now been evolving for more than ten years, with a significant number of additional pub history researchers who regularly update the site with historical detail and imagery, old and new.
This is a local search engine of the UK Pub history site. You can search by surname, street address, or public house name. The search engine updates weekly. If you are looking for a specific pub history listing, some of these can only be found in the sitemap - see the navigation bar on the left.

Whiteís History, Gazetteer & Directory of Essex ~ 1848
Submitted and Transcribed by Essex Villages
FRINTON, a small parish on the sea-coast, 2Ĺ miles S. S. W. of Walton on the Naze, has only 44 inhabitants, 470 acres of land, four houses, and a few cottages, though it is said to have anciently had a village, which was washed away by the ocean, at least two centuries ago, and since then the sea has continued to encroach annually upon the land, by undermining the cliffs. Pyrites used formerly to be gathered on the beach, for the manufacture of copperas.
Miss Charlotte Lushington is lady of the manor of Frinton, Skyrmanís fee, and the other principal landowners are Rt. Hills, Esq., E. H. Reynards, Esq., and the representatives of the late I. S. Brown.
The old Hall was pulled down about 1720, and its site is now in the sea. The present Hall is occupied by a farmer, and the three other houses are the Parsonage (a small cottage, occupied by a labourer,) the Wick, and the Battery House. In one of them lived the celebrated Cornelius de Tulbury, who among other exploits, swallowed considerable quantities of poison without injury. The famous Capt. Bushell, distinguished for his extraordinary success in fishing for wrecks, was long resident here.
Of the ancient Church, standing on the cliff, about 300 yards from the sea, only part of the west end remains, the remainder having been destroyed by a storm in 1703. The rectory, valued in K. B. at £7. 6s. 8d., and in 1831 at £180, is in the patronage of e. H. Reynard, Esq., and incumbency of the Rev. Fras. Vyvian Luke, for whom the Rev. j. L. Kirby, of Little Clacton, officiates.
