My husband's great great grandfather was the proprietor of the Wagon Load of Lime. In the 1861 Census, he is listed as John Cheshire, and is living with his wife Ann and daughter Emma. By 1871 he was an annuitant living with his son in Witton Lane, West Bromwich. Before that he had been a farmer in Arley. It looks like he was the innkeeper for nearly twenty years (before 1851 to nearly 1871). No doubt decided that being a publican was a lot easier on the back than a farmer as he probably moved into the pub before 1851 when he would have been in his late forties, early fifties. *

Abraham Elson is interesting in that he marries Jane Train in 1863 (aged 24), at the time he is a farmer & widower (aged 33), by 1878, he remarries to Rhoda Wilson, and again as a widower. They are both still alive in 1911.
