The UK Pub history site and street directory, plus research of pubs, publicans, hotels and beer houses

The outline of the pub history site is to list ALL pubs of the last 200 years with detailed information on each, including their occupants and staff members; i.e. it is a genealogical search tool. It is never exhaustive, but it's pretty damned good so far. Please help me make it better if you have anything to add. Use the search engine to find pubs by name, publicans and bar staff by name, or just use it as a historical street directory - all detail on one site of about 50 thousand pages and over 10 thousand images. The site lists all counties in England, but some are sparse in content, whilst London and the South is very well documented. Use the links above to traverse the site; and if a search fails, type your search into google, find the relevant page on Ewans pubology site and it brings you back here again!

I have found that my 2nd great grandfather, Samuel Stockdale was a publican in the 1870s 80s and 90s, as beer retailer, and beer house keeper. The 1871 records show him at the British Volunteer (Victoria Dock Road), then at Greengate street (1881 census) and also at the Park Tavern (Tottenham), maybe in 1874. *
