The publicanís daughter, Ada Dickinson features in a family tree I am interested in. I have provided an extract from the 1891 census below. The publican, Agnes Dickinson, was the daughter of William Bodkin (not Bollkin as in the census). She married Henry Dickinson early in 1882, but he had obviously died before the 1891 census.

You say that in the 1891 Post Office Directory, the Hearts of Oak was listed as belonging to the executors of William Bodkin, so I guess the Bodkins must have had the money. I donít know how long Agnes Dickinson ran the pub for, but by the time of the 1901 census, she was retired and Ďliving on my own meansí.
