This is interesting...
Kelly's Directory of Oxfordshire, for both 1907 and 1911, shows the following entries under commercial businesses for Clattercott, Oxfordshire:
-- Liner Thos. C. Chequers P.H. & butchr
-- Peachey William H. haulier

"...no mention of a place called "The Chequers"."
The Chequers is situated on the main road through Churchill, opposite the recreation ground and church. It was still trading under that name until a few years ago. In the last couple of years it has been sold and 'done-up' into what tourists might think a country pub should be.
...The Chequers is situated on the main road through Churchill, opposite the recreation ground and church...By any chance, is Clattercott near or part of Churchill? I guess it's conceivable that William Henry PEACHEY took over The Chequers after 1901... or maybe he owned/ran both a public house and a hauling business.

By any chance, is Clattercott near or part of Churchill?Clattercott? - I think this must be Clattercote which is up near the Northants and Warwicks borders; it's a tiny place between Claydon and Cropredy. Clattercote to Churchill must be 20 miles.

GeoffersSounds right. My goof. I was reading the name off the Leicestershire Historical Directories site. Thanks!

Yes thank you, this is the right family Mabel Ann is my husbands Grandmother. Most of the information I have is via a man called ALAN WATKINS who lives in the area. He lists William Henry Peachey as landlord of the Chequers smallholder and Haulier. William married twice the second ime to Edih May Smith 14/9/1918. Does anyone know anything of Edith and their 3 children, Stella, Maurice William and Leland?

Has anyone come across Henery WATSON and Mary MIDWINTERs' family in ALVESCOT. Richard (Richard2, Henery1),born 1741, the fourth grandchild may have moved to Limehouse, east London, Middlesex, in order to marry Mary COLLINBOURNE, m. 1766, and open a business as glazier and ironmonger, on Fore Street, Limehouse.
