    I am researching the Joachim family of Chedworth/Yanworth and came across evidence that Phillip Joachim ran the Railway Inn in 1865. He died that year (he survived 19 days of marriage) and his wife ran it until March 1866 when she returned to her home village of Daglingworth in Gloucestershire. *
