Subject: [ENG-PUBS-INNS] 2 Questions: Inn vs Pub,& Queen's Head in Wellington, Salop, Eng.
Date: Mon, 28 May 2007 21:19:50 -0700
I hope this isn't a dumb question but does anyone know the
difference between an Inn and a Pub? Or is there a difference?
Here in the US I've always thought an Inn was more like a place
one would spend the night while away from home such as a
hotel but I'm not sure what it would be technically especially
in the 1800's in England.
I keep finding more and more victullar's, publicans, grocers, and inn keepers
in my extended ancestry. I recently found one of my extended relatives,
Ann(e) ("Annie") REYNOLDS, in the 1891 census living at Queen's Head,
26 Walker St., Wellington, Shropshire, England. Her occupation was given
as Inn Keeper, but on the 1901 census it says she was a retired publican,
which makes me think that Queen's Head was possibly and Inn and a pub.
Does anyone know which is most accurate?
I don't know maiden name. She was the widow of Thomas REYNOLDS.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
