Wiveliscombe pub history index
Directory of Pubs in the UK, historical public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in Somerset. The Somerset listing uses information from census, Trade Directories and History to add licensees, bar staff, Lodgers and Visitors.
The following entries are in this format:
Year/Publican or other Resident/Relationship to Head and or Occupation/Age/Where Born/Source.
Thomas Richards (1796-1857) and his wife Ann (1784-1866), Mason were at the
Mason's Arms in 1841. *
Their son Thomas (1823-1892) is also at the Masons Arms by 1861.
Their son Simon Richards is at the Borough Inn by
John Richards (1815-1882) and his wife Sylvia - their daughter Anna Maria Richards - my great grandmother who is our Matriach because she used her maiden name as their family name which is why I am a Richards today.
Their grandson was Thomas Richards 1850-1920 and I believe he was a stone mason at the Royal Oak by 1881. *
