CUMBERLAND HOUSE, New Street

CUMBERLAND HOUSE
3 New Street
*
The WHITE BULL in New Street acquired this
name for some reason in the 1850's.
*
MINE HOSTS:
1851                John Smith
1860                Christopher Wadsworth   
*
See WHITE BULL, at the same address.
John Smith is shown as the landlord there in 1851, and C. Wadsworth is
shown as Christopher Wadsworth in the 1861 Census.

Preston Chronicle  7th August 1858
Christopher may have been here at the
time of this incident. See also, the Church
Tavern, Patten Street, and the White Bull,
New Street, the alternative name for this one,
'Cumberland House'.
