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:

Year/Publican or other Resident/Relationship to Head and or Occupation/Age/Where Born/Source.

In High Street. The site now occupied by one shop of Mr.G. F. Benjafield. Kept in or about 1678 by Jasper Stacey.    - Inns of the Parish to 1903 - George Sweetman.

1774 Andrew Ivy.   - Inns of the Parish to 1903 - George Sweetman.

1792 Angel Lane is mentioned in the accounts of the Feoffees.   - Inns of the Parish to 1903 - George Sweetman.

1797 James Thorn.   - Inns of the Parish to 1903 - George Sweetman.

1801 Joseph Hutchings. Census of that year.   - Inns of the Parish to 1903 - George Sweetman.

1811 - John Way. Census of that year.   - Inns of the Parish to 1903 - George Sweetman.

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!
