Publicans & Beer Sellers

Revised to inlclude download link.

This is a bit of hard core local history research, but it might be the sort of project that appeals to other family historians with heritage to do with pubs and beer houses.

For several years I have been building a dataset of public houses, inns and beerhouses, with particular focus on their proprietors, managers and keepers.  I have focused on the areas inhabited by those ancestors who lived near to my home, that is mainly Brownhills and Chasetown.  I have been in many of them at one time or another, those that were still open in my adult life.  Some were run at one time by Andrew’s Kindred – the “Pub Dennises“, some were, doubtless, frequented by others, and some grew up there.

You are welcome to download, share and add more information.

Here is a screen shot:

Public Houses excerpt
Excerpt from Public Houses dataset, with a few example notes.

The notes are just a few examples.  Some clarify the name of the establishment, some of which changed with time, some identify news articles about transfer of license or just who was the licensee when some incident was reported.

Download here – Public Houses.

The original was created in Oxygen Office Calc and saved in .xls format, which I hope you can open in Microsoft Excel or other formats that you use.

Otherwise, if you would like a copy please reply and I will email (it is only 134 KB).
