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.

My research shows that George Beaney and his family (the spelling of their name varies) were living in Canterbury for the 1861 and 1881 censuses, where he worked as a sawyer. He is recorded as an ‘Inn Keeper’ in the Ash Parish register for the baptism of their daughter Elizabeth E Beaney at Ash in 1871. *
My particular interest is in James Beaney (1828-91) the younger brother of George (1826-97). James had a rags to riches life story, rising from poverty to become a doctor with the Melbourne, Australian title of Honourable. He left a £10,000 bequest to build an Institute in Canterbury which opened in 1899 and houses our public library plus a museum. It is currently being refurbished and extended. *
