Introduction

The data in this section mainly covers the years during the 18th and 19th centuries when some sources only give a vague indication of location. Being essentially an index, which it is hoped will be of help to family historians, it requires the proviso that for total accuracy any actual source which the index suggests might be useful, should itself be consulted.

Records of Publicans in the 18th and early 19th centuries 

The notes in this section refer those people listed from 1753 in the records of the Quarterly Sessions when one or two sureties were paid on their behalf. The sums involved originally were 10 and victuallers would often serve each other, perhaps to save others needing to travel to the venue. The houses are not named, being known only by the name of the victualler.

The Radfords.

The Radfords, including Ann, were at the Inn named as the Three Horseshoes in the 1830's (and possibly before that if the Directories had mistaken 'Ann Bradford' and 'Ann Bradfield' for Ann Radford's name.) The family may well have been there from 1765. Joseph is listed from 1765-1772, Sarah for three years and Paul from 1776-1821 (in 1775 Joseph was tenant of the adjacent blacksmith's shop which may account for the name chosen). It was at Sarah Radford's that the meeting to consider asking for an Act of Parliament (actually passed in 1777) to enclose the common lands was called.

Enoch Smithurst.

He was listed from 1753-1763 and stated to be from Lea. William Flint was surety for him. His dates would allow him to be the victualler in the house, which it is speculated might most probably be the Three Horseshoes, later taken by Radford in 1764/5.

However the date stone over the door of the Jug and Glass 'SSE 1782' could refer to Smithurst, Enoch and Sarah (his wife). Such a couple had sons christened in 1748 (but 1782 is later than the last date when he was noted at the Quarter Sessions although he was alive in 1783). Equally, Elisha and Sarah Sleigh of Lea were mentioned in 1748. In this case however there is no known connection of them with any Inn.

William Bunting.

He features in the Quarterly Sessions records from 1753-1776. During this time it seems likely the Radford's were at the Three Horseshoes. An auction was advertised in the Derby Mercury in 1758, to be held at 'Wm. Bunting's Inn at Lea'. An early meeting, in December 1766, of the Trustees of the Cromford - Langley Mill Turnpike was held 'at the house of Wm. Bunting in Lea', the only time they met in the parish in the 18th century. It is noteworthy that Lea was not on the route of the road and all other meetings were held at houses on the route. It seems they did not meet at an Inn such as the Yew Tree in Holloway, for they specifically met at Lea! If the Radfords were at the Three Horseshoes, then we must postulate another Inn at that time. Peter Nightingale was a Trustee of the road and had property in Lea. The date stone over the door entering the present Jug and Glass states 1782, after the date of the meeting. Structurally there is evidence that the front of the building was an extension of an earlier one and that the 'Row' was a further development. Of course the Jug and Glass Row was built by the same Peter Nightingale and he would be in a position to suggest and even invite the meeting to convene at the Inn he owned, possibly on the site of the present Jug and Glass.

The Flints.

George Flint is listed as the publican at the jug and Glass between 1821 and 1825. The Quarter Session's lists extend his involvement in the trade back to 1810 in Lea; it might reasonably be assumed at the Jug and Glass. The family does however have many associations with public houses.

The Three Horseshoes has within its present structure a date stone 'S F 1731'. There is a Samuel Flint mentioned in the Parish Registers when his children were christened in 1737 and 1740. William Flint provides surety on many occasions between 1755 and 1777, for houses in both Holloway and Lea, including that of the Radford family. It may be that the Flints built the property and were letting it to the Radfords. This is however only based on speculation, nothing more. It is not unusual for families to move from one public house to another.

It is also of some interest to note that Wm. Flint, Wm. Bunting and Enoch Smithurst were among the ten signatories to a suggestion in 1755 that the date of the Wakes week should be changed.

Public Houses in Holloway

There is often a public house specifically in Holloway after 1766. The Youngs (Charles and Adam) are named between 1766 and 1809. William Peat appears from 1807 - 1821.

Others

There are many names besides those above, for example, Wm. Higget of Lea (1753), John Millward (1760), Roberta Gregory (1764-76) in Lea, John Gibson (1769-73) in Lea, Edward and Elizabeth Wild (1760-63). Mary Alsopp appears in 1762, the location being given as Bow Wood. It seems likely that this was what is now known as Lea Bridge.

Early Taverns

The Domestic State Papers, No. 25, 1577 provide a

"Certyfycate of namys of all such as do kepe Taverns Innys and Ale Howys* compiled by Sir Francis Leek, Knyght, Justice of the Pease, in response to the commandment of the Right Honorable Lordes …. Of the Quene's Maiesties moost honorable privie Councell. 15 November 1577.

(Both family names Bacon and Johnson occur in Dethick, Lea and Holloway in later times, the latter in 1559 and 1579. Mary Backon (b 1631) of Nether Holloway died aged 108 in 1739)
