Not Brentford

Brentford Licensed Victuallers recorded in 1861, 1882 and 1900

Vic Rosewarne has provided the following lists of licensed victuallers and beersellers from three years: 1861, around a month before the census, 1882 and 1900. In each case there are separate lists for Old Brentford, which was still part of Ealing parish in 1861, and New Brentford.

The 1861 lists include licensed victuallers only. Those for 1882 and 1900 have separate lists of beersellers.

There are 133 distinct surnames in the 176 records that follow: thus several surnames appear more than once. Further checks show 27 surnames were recorded in two or more of the three years: Atkinson, Barnes, Bee, Boxall, Buss, Collier, Gomm, Green, Hamblen, Hillyar, Hinton, Humphreys (spelling varies), Jennings, Loader, Marshall, Mattthews, McNae, Padbury, Pearce, Powell, Smith, Stout, Tayler, Taylor, Thick, Turner and Wise. Many of these surnames are distinctive and not particularly common: it seems likely that the same family was recorded more than once.

In addition to this group of 27 surnames there are a further five surnames which appear twice in the same year: Brooks, Farrington, Ferris, Kates and Piper; these individuals may also be related.

The site includes further information that may be useful if your ancestor was a licensed victualler or beerseller: several licensed victuallers are recorded in family research. Vic has also transcribed details of over 300 licence transfers from 1846; each records the new and previous licensee and often the reason for the transfer is stated or can be inferred.

The site may have further information about the property. If you know the exact High Street address (it may be included below) then find the relevant notes in in the Properties: High Street; these notes often include names of occupants and sometimes details of the structure of the building with links to any photos or postcards. Or, to get an exact address, try the List of pubs A-Z. Searching for the pub name may also bring up references found on this site. Finally, Vic has undertaken some detailed research into individual pubs and his findings will be published over time.
