Hostelries in South Normanton
« on: Sunday 06 August 17 11:17 BST (UK) »
I have two points of reference in my search for families in South Normanton - both of them licenced premises - separated by about 40 years. I am wondered if they might represent the same place with a change of name. In 1812 I have a death recorded as The Rose Inn; in 1871 I have someone charring at the Devonshire Arms. The latter could be the granddaughter of the former.

Clutching at straws, maybe!

You will understand this when I tell you that I can trace my ancestry back to a protoplasmal primordial atomic globule."
