Search ME by surname, address or pub name
I have been researching pub history for 10 to 15 years. The southernpubs pub history site is now a separate site describing this area, i.e. pretty much anything south of the Watford gap.
Next, the pubshistory.com site now lists all of London, and much of the South East, or as I refer to them as the home counties. This includes Berkshire and Buckinghamshire on this site. These are the London home counties as far as I am concerned.
A new site, is currently detailing a number of 2017 listings of the relevant 58000 pubs in 2017. These pages link to the other sites and already have many links. This site is currently - pubsinUK.com ; anything can change as it often does.
What I thought I may do here, is a simple description of the London and south of England area. I do this for many reasons, including I also need this detail.
Lets start with Surrey, as I have little idea where Surrey is. I will next add Essex, Kent and Suffolk. I know where these all are, and can desctibe them with a lot of detail. And then another mystery to me, Sussex. I already have this started for London
The pub history sites are regularly updated by Stephen and Kevan, plus an 'open' group of like-minded individuals on a daily basis; and anyone is welcome to contribute. If you visit the site, you will quickly understand that this is more than just a pub history site.
Do you have a victualler, publican or beer retailer in your family history? This site will, hopefully, answer your questions as to where their pub was.
Pubs, like churches move slowly over a period of time, I use this to my advantage;as I do other buildings like hospitals. The site is a little lacking in modern history, and does not always have post codes or a recognisable modern address.
