    Joiners Arms, Colchester – Two for the price of one!

    This story all starts with the birth of the first of 14 children of my Great Grandfather Henry John Dadds and a barmaid called Mary Ann Thompson in 1907. The registration of their son gave an address as Joiners Arms, East Hill, Colchester and the investigation began.
    Most of the Essex work on this site was produced by Ian Hunter and getting in to the Colchester records I found an entry for Joiners Arms, Trinity Street and East Hill. Quickly out with the map I noticed a problem, East Hill and Trinity Street seemed to be a distance from each other. Not to be outdone I shot to another excellent Colchester site www.camulos.com  and found that in Trinity Street the Joiners Arms building still existed, in fact there was a picture of it but it is now called The Purple Dog and was also The Clarence in an earlier life. Also, this established that my Joiners Arms couldn’t be this one unless the birth registration was wrong.
    I then found The Clarence landlords in the early twentieth century were the Goodman’s and a picture also confirmed this was the former Joiners Arms in Trinity Street building, yet the landlord of the Joiners Arms in that period was a Vaughan. So did we have two Joiners Arms for the price of one here?
    The answer was yes, thanks to confirmation from Camulos Webmaster Sdapeze, as Mary Ann’s Joiners Arms was at 93 East Street at the bottom of East Hill whilst the earlier Joiners Arms was in Trinity Street and was then The Clarence and is now The Purple Dog.
    Many thanks to Kevan and Jess for their help in my search. ***
