Pubs in Widnes 1871 - Is it still There?
« on: Sunday 21 May 06 17:04 BST (UK) »
Hello ;)

One of my Rellies Jonathan Wade was a Stonemason and Publican in the 1871 census - living at The Crown Inn Appleton, or Appletow (cant quite make it out) Civil Parish: Widnes 
Ecclesiastical parish: Farnworth St Luke, Ref RG10/3857 Folio: 112  Page: 8

Does anyone know if it still exists today - or have any photos?

Cheers

Hi Rose

Thanks very much - very pretty picture - who is she? :-*

I have found Jonathan Wade in 1871 and he moved to Worcestershire where he was a liscensed victualler.  In 1881 he is a Widow and has moved back to the Widnes area - giving his profession as a publican again  this time there is no name for the Pub but the address is 7 Page Lane Widnes St Ambrose - anyone know the name of the Pub?

Cheers

The picture was my Dad's cousin.

Pubs on Page lane Widnes -

Commercial Hotel
3, Page Lane, Widnes, Cheshire WA8 0AE
Tel: 0151 423 4463   


So he lived next door but one!

Seems unlikely to be two pubs next door but one?

Just googled a bit more..........

looks like Page Lane is quite industrial now - certainly a big unit at number 2. So the pub may now be gone.

You need someone with local knowledge - sorry I just googled!

Good luck
