Fern, See what you mean about ?? Arms - had a quick look + gave up. Just googled your details and it came up with MALSTERS Arms and a website: - didn't read it all but lots of info which you might find useful. Regards, Dea. P.S. Just looked at my message and it has not put in the full web address I wanted to tell you about. If you want it - send me your e-mail address and I will send it direct. Dea. x

What a great idea......My g/g/uncle ran a Pub called the Yachtsmans Arms, in Brightlinsea, which I believe is in Essex (not too sure about that) He was born in 1857 and his name was John Sawyer, don't know when he died sadly. He was born in a place called Bures in Suffolk or Essex ....Thanks for suggesting this list...Wonderful...Best Wishes Maureen

Mine is the DERBY ARMS or DERBY INN, known as the TOP DERBY to distinguish it from another Derby Arms in the same road! This was in Barnes Green (Blackley?) Manchester. My 2 x Gt Grandparents, THOMAS AND ELIZA BELL had it for over forty years, Eliza was still there as a widow in 1895 (TD). Marjorie

My husband's ancestors were running a pub called KING HENRY V111, King Henry Walk just off the Balls Pond Road, Islington in 1851. Edward Foley was 41 b Lambeth Wife Maria age 37 St Georges Hanover Sq. The children were born either Bermondsey or Islington. They had moved to Essex by 1871 but I have not been able to find them in 1861. When I went up to the LMA I tried to find out about them but the licenses started after 1851. Shirley
