Thanks ShaunJ. Listley Street was the address on the christening records.

You could contact Lichfield Record Office as they hold the wills for the Royal Peculiar of Bridgnorth (which are not currently online). https://www.staffordshire.gov.uk/leisure/archives/contact/LichfieldRecordOffice/home.aspx

The British Library and Shropshire Archives - shropshirearchives.org.uk - also hold some other records for the peculiar.

Also there's this useful though paid site: http://www.bridgnorth-lists.co.uk/Search/SearchWill/index.php

which lists two wills - Barrett in 1642 and Barratt in 1828.

As far as burials there's two at Birmingham and one at Worcester that are about the right age for your Samuel:

Samuel Barratt, aged 45, of Coleshill St, buried 09 Jan 1834 at St Philip's Birmingham
also Samuel Barratt, aged 49, of Fleet Street [Birmingham], buried 28 Aug 1836 at St Philip's Birmingham
or Samuel Barnett, aged 53, buried 08 Jun 1842 at St Martin's Worcester

I'm thinking Samuel is still alive in 1841. The 1841 census has Elizabeth as housewife, not widowed. The family was residing at High Street, Bridgnorth at that time. I'm wondering if Samuel was still residing at Listley Street in the public house and the family moved to be away from the pub. Maybe Samuel's business expanded and he needed more room or maybe Elizabeth got tired at living in the pub. Who knows.
