The pub wiki site records detailed research about people, buildings and streets from diverse sources, including census detail, insurance records, street directories, licensing records, births, christenings, marriages, deaths and wills.
My site search is a little broken at present. Sorry.
The research has been built over a number of years by a team of experts; and continues to evolve. The best research on this site is for London pubs, taverns and beer houses over the past two hundred years, but nearly all of the south of the UK has entries; and much of the entirety of the UK is listed in one format or another. This history site also continues to evolve into a London history project, using the many thousands of pubs as part of this; plus street directories especially the unique 1832 and 1842 Robsons street directories.
