My great-grandfather, Joseph Searle, is shown in Kelly's Herts Directory of 1902, 1906 and 1908 as being a ‘beer retailer’ in Turners Hill, Cheshunt. The electoral roll of 1906 shows him residing at the Old English Gentleman. He is not listed in the 1910 edition of Kelly’s (Herts). *

The 1901 census records him living in Edmonton, N9, and Kelly’s Essex Directory gives his 1917 address as 48, Ashdown Road, Saffron Walden (the same address lists him as a beer retailer in the 1922 Kellys directory). Joseph Searle is listed as resident at The Axe and Compasses (now the Axe) in the same year. (Google maps now give the address of The Axe as 60, Ashdon Road), I cannot be sure of when he moved to the Old English Gentleman, or when he left it. I only know he was elsewhere in 1901. In 1914, he is listed as a beer retailer at 55 Castle Street, Saffron Walden, this would be the Five Bells.*

In 1922 and 1925 you cite Kelly’s (Essex) as showing Joseph with two addresses and two pubs: The Axe, and also The Nags Head in Braintree. Is this likely, or are there two Joseph Searles? The last entry for the Nags head is 1937 with J Searle, proprietor. It is known that my great-grandfather died in that year. *
