Mine's the Red Lion Hotel in Burley in Wharfedale. It was run by my great grandfathers nieces father in law and she and her husband worked and lived there in 1901. A very slight connection but a connection - a twig maybe! Debby Another way of putting it is my great uncles daughters father in law (I think!)

Jayne, I think The Ship's still there on Plumstead Common. I'm going up to Plumstead at the weekend I'll ask my Brother. Mine is Earl of Moira, Shooters Hill (then Charlton), name of Huxstep. My daughter also ran pub called Coventry Cross about 10 years ago and another in Surrey but I've forgotten the name of it. Jan

My Great Grandfather Robert Turner ran THE GREYHOUND at Fordham in Cambridgeshire until about 1900. The pub is still there but has a new name... The White Pheasent ..... I think! It seems to be more of a resturant now though. Viv

My Gx6 Grandfather Henry Floyd - nearly 7 ft tall and weighing in at 42 stone (a foreman bricklayer) built a pub in Romsey Hants called 'THE BRICKLAYERS ARMS' . He also had his portrait on the wall (we believe the portrait is now in Canada) The pub is now a private house called 'The Bricklayers' Another Gx6 grandfather, John Buckingham, kept 'THE WHITE HORSE' in Orford, Suffolk. My G G Uncle Edward Burt, fell down the stairs and died (aged 77 and we presume happy) at 'THE FREEMANTLE ARMS' in Southampton, in the 1950's maggie
