This appeal was seeking the grant of an excise licence to sell spirits.
1851 is the first date I have for the "GRECIAN INN" I wonder what
it had been known as prior to that, when it would have been  a beer-house?

SUDDEN DEATH

her way to Garstang, in the mail-cart from Great
Eccleston, where she had been staying for a few
