THE BEERHOUSE with PROVISION SHOP adjoining, situate in
Park Road, corner of Carlisle Street, known by the sign of the

The stock to be taken at a valuation. The present tenant is
retiring from business, having occupied the premises in the 
beer trade for twenty-four years.

earliest landlord I have a record of. Perhaps he had a manager on
the premises - see MINE HOSTS.
Described as the Bold Dragoon in the Census of 1861.
