Finding PublicansThis is a featured page

This page was inspired by my struggle to find out information on my Siggs ancestors, who happened to own hotels. While this list is not at all complete and certainly not exhaustive, I have begun to note down innkeepers and their addresses wherever possible when I come across them in the census records.

I am organising my data by county, and then alphabetically by town. If you know of any historic landlords and would like me to include them, please e-mail me at:

(to minimise spam I have disguised my e-mail address, so please remove "_removethisbit_" from the above)
