    Thumbs up King William Ale House (Thomas Stephens)

    I recently found out that one of my paternal ancestors, Worcestershire born Thomas Stephens, owned, or worked in a pub somewhere in Bristol and today I found out that it was the King William Ale House in Little King Street, St Nicholas Parish. This is found on his census in the addresses panel (which I forgot to look at the first time I saw it), in the 1861 and 71 censuses, the former stating he was a publican and the latter as a beerhouse keeper.

    I tried looking online to see if there's any photos of him, but I can't find anything sadly

    Hi there, I am researching my Dad's family. We have a Thomas Stephens in our tree. He was my great grandfather, and an inn keeper. Born in East Dean around 1842. Am wondering if the 2 are the same person
    Thanks

    You don't say in which county East Dean is, and I can only find the one in Sussex, which would imediately rule out the two Thomases being the same person.

    However, according to the 1871 census, Nettlebranches' Thomas was born in 1810. Census reference RG10/2523 folio 23 page 1, so that would definitely rule out any connection.
