Camborne Public House
« on: Thursday 24 May 18 21:45 BST (UK) »
At 66, Trevenson Street is a public house called Red Jackets Tavern. I am trying to discover whether this was its original name and , if not, what it was called 100 years ago. I haven't got any help from large scale O.S. maps and the directories have only yielded 'The Reynolds Arms' which was indeed in Trevenson Street but every directory I have seen does not give a number. Can anyone help?
Thanks, Toby.

A history search says it was named after the militia brought in to deal with the riots in **- frustratingly the excerpt stops there so if you happen to know what year the riots were it would help with dating the name.

** - found a bit more - riots in Camborne in 1873.

Good idea Milliepede but census not too helpful. The Reynolds Arms is the only named pub I can find in Trevenson Street in 1891, 1901 & 1911. Numbering in 1911 & 1891 is 31 Trevenson Street.In 1891 the highest number is 65 Trevenson Street. Today, The Red Jackets Tavern is at No.66.
On the subject of naming after Camborne Riot of 1873, would that be a popular name for the working man's pub? T.

Does it go round a corner?  If so it might be named on the other street - whatever that is! 

The main entrance door may have changed over the years, just a thought. 

I don't know about it being a popular name, it's the first one I've heard of called that.

Having looked at a photo I see it does go round a corner.  I would suggest you pop round the corner too in case there are any clues there.

The way the 1901 census is enumerated it looks like it was the Reynolds Arms - on the corner of Trevenson Street and Stray Park Lane (now Stray Park Road)

However as you say it is numbered 31 in other censuses. I wonder if there has been a renumbering at some point.

"By midnight on 8th October a telegram was sent to Plymouth for the military, and at 4.30am 112 officers from the 11th Regiment of Foot arrived in Camborne via the Great Western Railway.  With their bayonets fixed and rifles loaded the infantry patrolled the streets or stood guard over trouble spots like the ‘Reynolds Arms’ (The Red Jackets Pub).

Thank you ShaunJ & Milliepede too for settling the matter. I was in the Red Jackets Tavern last Saturday and no-one knew if it had an earlier name. When I next get to Camborne I will spread the news. The next debate will be Joshua Reynolds or someone else. T
