Not too sure, any idea who James' parents were?  My Freemantles originate from Bishop's Sutton via Easton and then Ecchinswell.

Thank you that's really helpful information, I know so little about this man (I know more about his own grandfather two generations further back than I do about him), so I am trying to build a picture of his life so he's not forgotten.

Many thanks for your reply. George & his family lived at Smiths Buildings, The Marsh, which was apparently a tied house belonging to South Berks Brewery. they later moved to Jack Street.

According to his late daughters' memoirs, the entrance to the Brewery was in Northbrook Street and the rear was at The Marsh -does that give any clues as to the name of this particular brewery?

I am going to the library next week in hope of finding some pictures to give me a feel of the times and conditions.

Thanks again

Does anyone know where and how I can find out more about breweries in Newbury?

I believe that my 2x great grandfather  George Freemantle worked at "South Berkshire Brewey". He and his family lived in Jack Street at the time  (c1901-1908) and his occupation was Brewers' Labourer.

I would like to find any staff records and any photos relating to the brewery.

Many thanks

I have researched my Enborne Ancestors and found many of them in the parish of Hampstead Marshall - the two villages seem very closely linked so might be worth you looking there for some clues.

All the best

It's a long shot but I am trying to trace the births of two people who later married, one is James Williams born c1801-1806 and the other is Sarah Jones born c1806.

They were both from travelling families so are very hard to trace as many different places of birth are given over various documents.  One place that has been mentioned is Lockinge, so I would be very grateful if you are able to have a look.

Many thanks

Thanks Jackie and Neilke, I have tried Greenham (found one of their marriages there), but I haven't heard of Cumnor - I will definitely look into it!

Thanks for that Jorose, I will look into siblings of Eliza Arnold, could be a good lead!  I have just been looking at the signiture of John Gillmore on his two marriage certificates, the John's look quite similar, but the handwriting on the Gillmore part is different.  It may just be that his handwriting altered over the nineteen years between marriages! I'm determined to get to the bottom of this someday!

Thanks Valda,

I think I need to find where the relevant Parish Records are held, and have a good search through, as I don't seem to be getting anywhere online!
