    Default Woodhalls Brewery, West Bromwich

    My great great grandfather Paul Woodhall (b. 1805) according to family legend owned a brewery in West Bromwich.
    According to:
    1861 census: Residing at 47, Parsonage Street West Bromwich. occ Retail Brewer.
    1871 census: Residing at Little Lane (Church Field Tavern ) West Bromwich. Paul was a widower. His occupation Licensed Victualler.
    I think his son Samuel ran a brewery later as "Samuel Woodhall Ltd"
    Is there anywhere I can find out more about these (this) brewery?

    Thanks i advance

    ".... Samuel Woodhall, brewer and wine and spirit merchant of High Streeet, West Bromwich ...."

    I can find several references to Paul Woodhall at Churchfield Tavern between 1854 and 1863 - but as a licensee, no mention of "brewer".

    Ah, you are getting somewhere...! Wonderful.

    Have just found this site of old West Bromwich photos: http://www.west-bromwich-photos.co.uk/aboutus.htm. Problem is you cannot search it - just have to plough through - but there is a small useful-looking forum. Might get some help there?
