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 pub history site lists the historical street and trade directory information for the UK, listing the Pub History of the South East of England. It is a pure historical Public Houses site.
The pub history pages list original content of Census, Trade Directory entries from the Post Office , Kelly and Pigots Directories, Petty Session Victuallers records etc. for the last two hundred years - this is not an
exhaustive list. Everyone drank beer rather than water as it was safer (this sounds good to me). In a similar vein, I drink a
lot of tea as it is a natural disinfectant for the stomach. (You may laugh, but this was an important aspect of the industrialized revolution.)
