Tracing Brewery and Publican Ancestors

Tracing Brewery and Publican Ancestors

Zoom talk
Until fairly recently the public house in its various guises was a centre of the community in Britain. Innkeepers were often respected figures locally. In addition most towns and villages had a brewery or two, providing beer to slake the throats of everybody from princes to paupers.

In this talk, Simon Fowler discusses the major sources you need to use if you have a publican or brewer on your family tree. Simon also looks at the changing nature of the tavern from the simple beer house to gaudy gin palace.

Bring your own beer!
