QUEEN ADELAIDE, St. John's Place

QUEEN ADELAIDE
9  (later 40)  St. John's Place
*
Referred to on one occasion as "QUEEN ANN"
More geography!  The Parish Church (Minster) is to
the left of St. John's Place, with the cobbles of Stoneygate
and Library Street still visible.
-
Pay a visit, and see how tightly packed
together all these properties must have been.
MINE HOSTS:
pre- 24.2.1838      Alexander Wearden ?    See Notice dated thus, below.

Preston Chronicle  24th February 1838
There is no certainty that Wearden was at
this public house. However, at this date there
was only this one active as far as I am aware.
Awaiting further evidence!


Mr. Fazackerley, Innkeeper, was at the "Fleece Inn."
  *
*
Preston Chronicle  18th September 1869
*
At the Licensing Sessions of September 1870,
an objection to the beer licence was made on
the grounds that the premises were frequented 
by prostitutes. Sidgreave was cautioned, but 
the licence was renewed.
-
On this occasion it was reported that
the house was called the "QUEEN ANN"
-
There have been several instances
where a 'fictitious' name has been
used in court cases, presumably in
an attempt to avoid bad publicity.
Personal comment.
