My great grandparents turned their house into a pub - The Dying Gladiator in Bigby Street, Brigg, Lincs. My GG grandfather carved a statue to sit above the door. It is reputed to be the only pub with that name in the British Isles. My cousin has a minature of the same statue. Another relation's parents had the Rose and Crown in Wrawby Street, Brigg. Jenny

No ancestors with pub connections - so far, but my brother-in-law ran the Black Horse in North Street, Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire in the late 1960s/early 1970s. It was a C16th (I think) coaching inn with a thatched roof. Does anyone know if it's still there? Sue xx

Had a rellie who ran a pub in Oving, Nr Chichester Sussex. family cannot remember the name though. Apparently he was a cooper who was then given the pub to run. His name was William Hutchins. If anyone can help with possible names of pubs in this area it might help jog memories. We think the pub is still there.

My ggg grandad George Tate was the victualler/coal merchant of the Canal Tavern in Whitley, North Yorkshire, in 1838. Unfortunately the pub is not there now, so I can't go to raise a glass to him. I also think that my gggg grandad Adam Allinson was the landlord of the White Horse in Ledston, in the early 1800s, but need to dig a little futher yet. This pub is still there. Maggy
