HIGHLAND LADDIE, Avenham Street

HIGHLAND LADDIE
31  Avenham Street
*
MINE HOSTS:
1853                Thomas Patterson  - There was a John Patterson at the Highland Lad in North Street.
1860     See Sale notice 23.6.1860
1860 - 71        John Barron
*
BREWSTER SESSIONS 1869
Reference was made to the fact that John Barron
 had been at the Highland Laddie for 9 years.
Preston Chronicle  18th September 1869

*
It is believed that the place closed down in 1871.
It was still open at the time of the Census of that
year, named as above, and situated next door to the
"GARTH'S ARMS. " 
See P.C. 2.9.1871

I think Barron went, in 1871, to the Clarence Hotel
in Grimshaw Street, a hotel that was to become a
music hall.

27.8.1870 - Licence objected to on the grounds that
the landlord was allowing prostitutes on the premises.

Satisfactory reasons will be given why the present

UPROARIOUS  FEMALES
Two young women, evidently "unfortunates" named
Jane Mason and Isabella Bell, were charge with 
committing damage at the Highland Laddie, Avenham
Street, and also assaulting PC. Almond. It appears
that the prisoners went into the Highland Laddie, and
 in a short time began to be abusive in their language. 
Subsequently, one of them sent a glass at a man who
was in the house. They were then put out, but, being
determined to carry out the row on their part to a
climax, they threw some bricks at the door, and Mason
sent a brick through the aperture made in the door at 
the landlord. PC Almond was sent for, and on his 
arrival both prisoners attacked him in a furious
manner. They struck him fiercely, and tore his 
coat badly. Bell cut the officer's head with a jug.
Bell fined 40s in default one months imprisonment.
Mason fined 20s or 3 weeks imprisonment.
