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!

In 1851, William Fenton was the inn keeper at the Queens head (he was also a butcher and I presume the son in law of Thomas Cooper the previous Inn keeper having married Elizabeth Cooper his daughter).
Unfortunately the notice on the 24th December 1853 in the Ipswich Journal showed that he had been made bankrupt.  *
