THREE TUNS, High Street

Apparently it later became known as the "COACH AND HORSES" but
I have no information relating to it.

                                              elections of 1796.  DDK/1683/73.

Robert Preston took over at the new 'Three Tuns,' but it's
not clear when.

More recently I have found that the first licensee at the
'New' Three Tuns, Robert Preston, died in 1834, so
possibly he was there slightly earlier than suggested.

*
TO BE SOLD BY AUCTION
By order of the surviving Trustees
under the Will of Robert Preston,
deceased.
At the house of Mr. John FOWLER, the Coach and Horses,
in Preston, by Mr. T. Threlfall, on 30th October.
LOT 4    All those two dwellinghouses, situate at the 
top of High Street, Preston, formerly used as an INN 
or PUBLIC HOUSE, known by the name of the 
OLD THREE TUNS.
Preston Chronicle 11th October 1834
*
There's a lot to sort out with regards to the 
chronology of both the Old and the New Three Tuns,
in High Street and North Road respectively.
