10 Aug 1865

Thos. Copestake, beerhouse keeper, Sim's croft, apprehended on a charge of brutally ill-treating his wife, who died from the injuries received. Committed for manslaughter by the Coroner, the Magistrates refusing an application made to them to commit him for murder. At the Assizes, sentenced :to sixteen years' penal servitude.

A little more information about Thomas Copestake Esquire. In December 1830 he was running the We-Three-Loggerheads-Be at Hawley Croft and was charged with harbouring prostitutes. It emerged that he was an ex-policeman who knew every prostitute in the city. As well as being caught with three rooms full of prostitutes at the beer-house, he ran a brothel in a house across the road in Sergeants Yard. In August 1859 he was convicted of Illicit Distillation (no longer a licensee, a labourer at Queen Street, Port Mahon). He had ill-treated his wife Elizabeth for many years, culminating in the events of 1865 above. The beer-house at Sim's Croft was described as "a low beer-house" as no doubt we would expect.

Nottingham Arms - two different ones

Educated opinion says that the Nottingham Arms and the Royal Oak on Hollis Croft were one and the same:

In June 1884 Thomas Malloney of the Nottingham Arms, Hollis Croft was fined for serving out of hours on a Sunday.

In February 1890 Michael Fagan was licensee at the Nottingham Arms, a drunken customer was killed in a fall.

There was also a Nottingham Arms on Harvest Lane, Bridgehouses:

In February 1884 the licensee John Linley was robbed whilst gambling at Newhall Gardens. In the May of that year he was fined for being drunk in Hyde. He got about a bit.

In November 1889 George Gregg was the licensee, a witness against a customer who had refused to leave,

In August 1899 Romeo Quglieni was initially refused a licence but eventually it was granted as the issues that were raised were due to a previous occupant.

Thank you Edmund for all this new information. I've been on holiday and I'm just catching up.

I can't seem to find a Three Loggerheads on the A to Z but maybe we have it as a different name

on Hawley Croft unless this was a beerhouse.

Keep them coming , we're always eager for new names and dates.

John North, Angel Inn, Sheffield, 25th February 1868.

John North, Angel Inn, Sheffield, 25th February 1868.

The brother of my GGG-Grandfather was George Skinner, the secretary of the Sheffield & Rotherham Licensed Victuallers Association. On Thursday August 31 1865 he called a meeting at the house of John North, the Angel Hotel, Angel Street to consider the magistrates' decision to withdraw the licence from Mr John Tyrer of the Three Whitesmiths, Bridge Street, and to support Tyrer's appeal.

At the Brewster Sessions on August 25th 1865 the magistrates had discussed Tyrers renewal petition. He had taken over the Three Whitesmiths from Matthew Stone Sellars in June 1864 and had bought the adjacent premises in Waingate, to transform his old-fashioned public house into a modern dram-shop. The magistrates decided that this had completely changed the premises' character and that a dram-shop was not needed in the area, so refused his renewal. They warned other publicans thinking of making similar changes that their licences would not be renewed.

At the appeal hearing arranged by the LVA, the Court of Quarter sessions reversed the magistrates' decision.

On 31st March 1870 there was a meeting of Mr North's creditors at the Cutlers Hall to discuss the failure of the Angel Inn. North's liabilities were £3,000 and his assets about £1,500. He offered to pay 7s 6d in the pound and this was accepted.

I’ve been looking into the Crosspool Tavern, Manchester Road, and can fill a few gaps in the licensee list. There was a link with the Plough Inn, Sandygate Road.

In May 1878 the Independent reported the death of George Elliott’s daughter, Mr Elliott (b. 1839) being the licensee of the Crosspool Tavern

In December 1879 it reported the death of another of George Elliott’s daughters (still at the Tavern)

The 1881 census shows George Elliott at the Crosspool Beerhouse

In 1882 the Independent published a lost dog advert for Samuel Lovell of the Crosspool Tavern.

In December 1887 Sam Lovell (b. 1852), landlord of the Crosspool Tavern was in a bad way, having had both of his legs broken in the Hexthorpe Railway disaster.

The 1891 census shows George Elliott at the Plough Inn with his wife Mary Ann.

By 1895 Sam Lovell had moved over the hill to the Plough Inn, taking over from George Elliott, who had moved there himself from the Tavern. Sam was reported as being the landlord when there was a haystack fire in November 1899.

Sam Lovell was probably George Elliott’s nephew, in the 1871 census he was living with Esther Elliott (farming widow 50 acres), George Elliott (farmer son of Esther) and the Elliott family at Sandy Gate. Samuel was Esther’s grandson. Both the men were nominated for the Council elections in 1896. When George died in 1900, Sam Lovell was one of his executors.

The Porter Tavern, Sharrow Vale Road:

The Independent on August 18th 1838 reported a drunken fight involving 25 men at Sharrow Bottom. The landlord where they had been drinking was Ralph Swift, who was charged with permitting drunkenness and disorderly conduct, but the case against him was dismissed.

At the 1841 census Ralph Swift gave his details as living at Sharrow Vale, a publican and table knife grinder, rounded age 35 years, living with his wife Frances and four children.

On August 27th 1842 the Independent reported on an inquest into an Endcliffe Dam drowning, held at the Porter Tavern, Sharrow Vale, the house of Ralph Swift.

Ralph's licence was renewed at the Brewster Sessions on 2nd September 1843, the address given as Porter Row, Sharrow Vale.

On 4th April 1846 Ralph was cautioned before the Mayor for allowing a watchman to be drinking in his house when he should have been on duty. Ralph claimed that he had been asleep when the watchman arrived.

On August 5th 1847 the paper reported that the proprietor Ralph Swift held the annual festival of the Rose of the Valley Lodge of the Leeds Independent Order of the Ark at the Porter Tavern.

August 7th 1847 the Independent reported an inquest on another drowning at Endcliffe Dam, held at the Porter Tavern, now the house of Robert Hetherton.

Ralph Swift died aged 56 on 25th June 1860.

Great work, as always UkeleleLady. Where on earth are you finding this information from ? I can't face trawling through it all again at the moment,

I understand, to be honest it has took me a while to get back in the mood again.

I think it was a PM from Bayleaf that got me into it again.

I have loads of oddments written down that I used to come across while searching other things in the library so

rather than ignore and get on with the job in hand I used to make a note of what I had spotted.

I am now sorting through them all and after Christmas I might even start on the beerhouses.
