Chigwell pub history index
See the Three Jolly
Wheelers, Woodford bridge for details of people, landlords etc.
The Three Wheelers is now a
Vintage Inn. The
modern postal address lists it as Woodford Green which is complete nonsense. It
has always been, and always will be, on the border of Chigwell, and Woodford
bridge. Any local would refer to it as being the latter due to its proximity to
St Pauls, Woodford bridge. The census until 1911 are all listed as in Chigwell,
although if you note, the birth places often change through time to Woodford
bridge rather than Chigwell; it's a local privilege.
The other point of note, looking at the 1851 Essex directory;
Daniel Knowles is listed at the Three Jolly Wheelers, under Chigwell. But
he is also listed at the Three Jolly Wheelers, Woodford bridge and under
Woodford in the same directory. The 1855 directory has two separate
listings, with different names, which is slightly confusing. The 1937
directory lists the Three Jolly Wheelers, High road - telephone : Buckhurst
0591; noted as Woodford Bridge, but listed under Chigwell.

Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in Essex. The Essex
listing uses information from census, Trade Directories and History to add
licensees, bar staff, Lodgers and Visitors.
