View Full Version : Finding a Brewer
25-01-2010, 10:21 PM
I am trying to find which pub/Inn my ancestor worked in, his name is Joseph Jackson, and is listed as an Inkeeper on the birth certificate of his son Edward in 1850 - his address is given as Crowtrees, Rastrick, Yorkshire. Later in life he is listed as a Brewer. His father in law William North, was a Publican in Mold Green, Dalton, West Yorkshire.
Any help finding out the pub names would be fantastic.

According to the 1851 Census Joseph was a Labourer living in Hipperholme cum Brighouse, with wife Emma and children Charles, Sarah Ann, Joe and Edward.

In 1858 there was a Joseph Jackson, White Bear Inn, Sowerby.

Hi Nicolina you are quite right he was listed as a labourer, but also on a birth cert as an Innkeeper, and later in life as a Brewer. I suspect that he "Innkeeped" when other work was slow, because the influence for thr alcohol trade came from his Wife Emma's side of the family. I suspect that the pub was run by her most of the time.
Hi helachau, thank you for that information, I wonder if you could point me toward that source ? this is of great interest because it is right in the family "territory"

Peterjay, it's route 1
a. google 'historical directories'
b. select 'Find by Keywords'
c. select location 'Yorkshire, decade '1850', keyname 'White' (the relevant directory) and enter keywords 'joseph jackson'
d. 4 "possibles" returned - select Directory of Leeds, Halifax, Huddersfield, Wakefield 1858 (click on Directory)
e.use search key '698'. This returns page 698 with Joseph Jacksonhighlighted
I have only checked the 1850s. He wasn't there in 1854 - a certain John Peel (sic) was the landlord.
Hope this helps

on a similar subject... if an ancestor was a brewery labourer in Burton on Trent whilst living at Stapenhill just over the river is it possible to find which brewery he worked for?
