Wincanton pub history index
Directory of Pubs in the UK, historical public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in Somerset. The Somerset listing uses information from census, Trade Directories and History to add licensees, bar staff, Lodgers and Visitors.
The following entries are in this format:

In High Street. The site now occupied by one shop of Mr.G. F. Benjafield.

Apparently Way was the last tenant who held a license in this house, for people to be "drunk on the premises." Mr. Melhuish, after this, kept a wine and spirit store here. He was followed by Mrs. John Goodfellow, who had a ladies' school. Some time in the thirties, Mr. George Russell, senr., opened a drapery shop, and called it " London House." After several other changes of tenants it still bears this name, - Inns of the Parish to 1903 - George Sweetman.

What I am now attempting to achieve is the coverage of an earlier London
street directory in 1832. This is unique, plus
images of the 1842 Robsons directory which confirm earlier entries and also
carry much more trade detail about a premises or person. Here is the index of streets in 1832, many with
1842 imagery added.
And next is the complete 1940 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
