HORSE SHOE HOTEL, Church Street

HORSE SHOE HOTEL
88 Church Street.
*
Formerly the "Horse Shoe Hotel," it became the
"George Inn" in the 1920's when the George Hotel,
Friargate, closed down. It is believed that the date
was recorded in the tiled entrance of this Church Street
public house.

EDWARD ALSTON
[Details received from a descendant]
My maternal 4x great grandfather was the Edward Alston who was the innkeeper in the 1850s. His daughter, Ellen, married an iron moulder from Kirkham called William Moxham, and they had seven children, including my ancestor Ellen Alice, who gave birth to my great grandmother Elizabeth Alice out of wedlock. Elizabeth married a soldier from Wigan called Lewin Henry Ricketts, who was in the Royal Field Artillery during WWI. They had five children themselves, including my maternal grandmother Helen Ricketts and lived in Bamber Bridge, where my mother was born and I was brought up.
 (My father's family is from Fulwood and other places in and around Preston)
Thanks to S.S.
