 ;D ;D ;D ;D Thank you Lloydy, s.g.d and Monica

You have given me several leads to work on now, and, best of all, it all seems to confirm my guesses and family rumours.


Family rumours say that one of my gt gran's sisters; Elizabeth or Emma who later ran the pub died in a vat of beer!!!

Now, if someone could just explain how a person could die in a vat of beer!!! :o :o  ;D

Thanking you all VERY VERY much, Gillian

Well, I've heard of adding a rat to a barrel of cider to improve the flavour... :o

If such a death happened, you can bet much would be made of it in "The Shrewsbury Chronicle".  Maybe the newspaper archives would be another place to look.

I drove down the cop tonight and had a brief look at what I think is No 55.......unfortunately, as it was an unplanned journey I didn't have my camera with me.

It's a 3 story white building, and not as posh as next door!!!!!  I'll get a photo for you over the weekend.

Hi Gillian, Fanny Edwards (I knew her as Aunty Daisy) was my grandmother's sister.  My husband and I have had an afternoon out in Shrewsbury today and I started to talk about my ancestry. I looked on the internet for references to The Wherry Public House and came across your post on Roots Chat.  Fanny Edward's father was John Thomas Pritchard, born in Shrewsbury.  My grandmother was Alice Maud Mary Pritchard one of sixteen children.  I too have heard the story that Daisy and her husband were at The Wherry and they
brought up a large family there.  I am in touch with two of Daisy's grandchildren, who live in Shropshire.  I can give you more information on the Pritchard family if you are interested.
