JOINERS' ARMS, Lord Street

36 or 38 Lord Street
(2 & 4 Lord Street in 1904)
The name later changed to "DERBY ARMS" after the closure 
of the Derby Arms in Back Lane
Formerly called the "JOINERS' ARMS"
The name was changed when the Derby Arms on Back Lane (now Market Street) closed.
Both properties were owned by the Earl of Derby.
The property next but one to the left of the Derby Arms as we look at it, was the "Green Man Inn"
1810 -                   Mrs. Foster - married Jeffrey Wignall 22.4.1810
1817                     Mrs. Mary Eastham   m. Richard Morris on 24th October 1817
1818 - 29              Henry Bowerbank
1831 - 33              Benjamin Raby   -  went to the Shelley Arms in 1834.
1833 - 41              Thomas Raby
1845 - 51              John Worthington
1851 - 60              William Forrest
1860 - 61              George Rigby
1865                     William Adcroft
1869 - 87              James Ward
1887 - 98              John Threlfall Cartmell
1898                     James Holt   -  In 1901 census, Holt and his family were living in Cross Street, Preston.
                                                    He was still listed as a Licensed Victualler, so I wonder whether there 
                                                    was a reason why they were living away from the premises, but still
                                                    running the Joiners' (by then it was the Derby Arms). It is also possible 
                                                    that they had nothing to do with these premises at that date. Further
                                                    enquiries to be made.
According to the Licensing Court Records, the name changed on the 5th April 1899. The Earl of Derby
owned both these premises and the one's that had been demolished in Back Lane.

1901                  Herbert Clifford Sargent   - in 1901 census at 236 St. Paul's Road - Brewer's Manager. Worked for Shoe Street Brewery.
1903 - 10            Edward Lofthouse
1911 - 13            James Campy
1917                    Peter Knowles
1924 - 27            Mrs. Agnes Knowles
1932                    William Cross
1936 - 40            James Thomas Cross
1944 - 48           William Harrison
MARRIAGE:   On the 24th ult., Mr. Richard Morris,

William GREGG was charged with robbing John FORREST,
a butcher, of Lord Street on the previous evening. The parties
had been tossing and drinking at the Joiners' Arms public house, 
in Lord Street, and shortly before eight o'clock Forrest went out
to the back premises, when he was soon afterwards joined by
Gregg. When Forrest returned to the house he missed 18s 9d,
which he believed Gregg had stolen, and gave information to
the police.

Gregg was apprehended in Brunswick Street, by Beckett and 
Steinson, and a considerable sum of money was found in his
possession, though he had had in the course of the day borrowed 
a shilling from Forrest.

He was committed for trial.
