Chequers or Old Cow (Beerhouse), 64 Coal Pit Lane

Recommended Posts

Looking at the Chequers or Old Cow (Beerhouse) posting, I think that these are two different places.

White's 1833 directory has:

Jane Alsop, vict. Chequers, 43 Coalpit Lane

John Renwick, Old Cow beerhouse, 64 Coalpit Lane

The 1837 directory also has:

Jane Alsop, vict. Chequers, 43 Coalpit Lane

John Renwick, beerhouse, 64 Coalpit Lane

But then, Robson's 1839 directory has:

A. Alsop, Beer Retailer, 64 Coalpit Lane

Jno. Renwick, pen & pocket knife manufacturer & beer retailer, 12 Coalpit Lane

It looks that Coalpit Lane was renumbered between 1837 and 1839; #43 became #64, and #64 became #12

Beautifully worked out, however, that was just the one name that sprang to my mind - you ready for the rest ? lol

Thank you for untangling that one !

Nice to see a clear intelligent mind at work Jeremy, mine left the planet about the time I had 10,000 publicans and I couldn't work out what to do with them all - brain still missing, data, however, still doing a good job.
