1869/James Ashley/../../../Post Office Directory

James Ashley is a retired publican by the 1871 census. His daughter, Jane Elizabeth Ashley, married my great grandfather William Morley Browne in 1874 and by 1881 they had taken over the pub. Their fourth child, my grandfather, Malcolm Thurston Browne was born (probably in the pub) in 1881, but not until July 9th, so he does not appear in the 1881 census. *+
