Wright's Coffee Tavern/Harrison confectioner
« on: Friday 15 May 09 16:05 BST (UK) »
Hi I'm looking for any information on The Coffee Tavern at Eastwood Nottinghamshire.The proprietors William and Mary Wright.I think it was around 1891.

Also anything on Mary's father Samuel Harrison (1815-1885) a confectioner on Bridge St Belper in 1861.

Any pictures of either properties would be great or anything on either families, i have the census returns  but nothing else.

Hi

Have you searched the images on

http://www.picturethepast.org.uk/

I put in the terms and came up with nothing but there are pictures of the high street etc that you can zoom in on.

Also have you looked on

http://www.historicaldirectories.org/hd/

This may reveal some information for you.

Hi Daisy,

Where did you find the mention of the coffee tavern Eastwood???

(If I have the correct family) in census i can find no mention of the family living/working at a Coffee tavern- 1891 they lived Nottingham Rd - and on another census The Breach

My OH knows Eastwood (and a lot of its history) fairly well -so any other "pointers" could help

Hello Suz
I have a paper clipping what was in the family Bible.It's of William and Mary's Golden Wedding.It gives a brief history of their life.It states
William Wright son of Jas (James) Wright of Denby, his wife Mary a daughter of Samuel Harrison confectioner of Bridge St Belper.Mr and Mrs Wright migrated, taking up residence at Newthorpe and finding work at High Park Colliery for 47yr.After residing at Newthorpe eight years and a brief period in The Breach.Mr and Mrs Wright launched out into business, becoming proprietors of an establishment known as The Coffee Tavern.Mr Wright figured prominently in his middle age in the organizations of concerns for the benefit of his less fortunate fellow men.He was a member of "Faith Hope and Charity"Lodge of A.O.O.F for 45yrs.
I don't know anything about the charity .My mother remembers my grandma going to the Tavern as a young girl.I would like to find anything i can about it and of Harrison's confectioners.
Any help would be most welcome.
Daisy
