Researching Publican & Brewery Ancestors 
Wednesday 05 July 2017, 19:15 - 21:30
Dave FosterHits : 491 

Hundreds of thousands of our ancestors ran a pub, worked in a beer house, tavern or coaching inn, or were brewer’s draymen or  coopers.  The public house, in all its forms, had been a key part of local communities for many centuries, and remains almost as popular now as they were in Victorian times. Simon Fowler is an experienced genealogist and lecturer, an expert on this subject and is also a member of the Pub History Society.  His talk will show members how to start researching  their brewery and publican forebears, looking at the major sources they will use to find more about these men and women. Simon will also provide a brief history of brewing and pubs in Britain since medieval times.
