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!
The Suffolk Villages Site is dedicated to those whom were brought up in the harsh life of Suffolk, often as agricultural labourers, who endured the hardships that we hopefully do not know now.
I support a couple of children through World Vision, and one is in Zimbabwe, poor kid. [No further comment - but World Vision is a great charity].
This site is also a sign of respect to all those whom have helped me in my search for an ancestry in Suffolk; plus those who supported a trip to Kenya - to help others, by my daughter. Many of these people were researching Suffolk, and this is my thanks.
The Suffolk Villages site will eventually encompass every Suffolk Village and Town, but bear with me - I also have a life. For the impatient, visit the Links page to see the work already done on Suffolk Public Houses. with Essex at deadpubs.co.uk and there is a separate Kent Villages site, too.
Here is a brief description of Suffolk according to the Suffolk 1830 White's Directory; this is transcribed by Colin Ager, whom is also helping me with many other census details for the site.
A new site for Cambridge Pubs should be of interest, as many of the servants / bar people / licensees appear to be from Suffolk - more to follow on this.
