My great great grandfather, George Talbot, was a proprietor here in the 1870s. When Georgeís father (also George Talbot) died in 1860, I can see from the 1861 census that his wife, Frances Talbot, became a publican at the Red Ox at 33 High Street in St. Thomas. ***

In 1841 and 1851 my great great great grandfather was listed as a brewer. From the limited knowledge I have gained from on-line maps, I am thinking he was living close to Hallís Brewery and Morrells. I guess after all this time it would be impossible to determine which brewery he was working for. ***

A man named Richard Talbot who I havenít yet proved to be a relative, is shown in the 1851 census to have been running a brewery tap at 34 High Street in St. Clement. ***
