Maltsters in Longton - 1860's
« on: Sunday 11 July 10 10:22 BST (UK) »
Do any of you know how I can find more information on Maltsters particularly in the 1860's. I've just discovered that my 3x Gt-Grandfather was a Maltster in Longton, Preston. I know it's something to do with the brewing industry and malting hopsetc but that's about it.

Any help that you could provide would be appreciated.

Many Thanks

Duck,

His name was John Harrison Born abt May 1813, Baptised 6 June 1813 at St Andrews, Longton. He was listed as a Maltster in the 1861 Census which gave his address as the Liverpool & Preston Road

Thanks for the information about the road name, I'll have a look at where it is in relation to the Liverpool & Preston Road.

Regards

Wilkins Brewery in Longton had Malt Kilns of which I'm trying to find more information

Apparently there was another brewery ?

Duck,

Thanks for that,
I was just looking at the Longton History website, and apparently in the 1870's a Maltster had some premises just before the Wesleyan Chapel.

Hi :)

A bit earlier than you need, but the establishment may have been in the same place - 1829 Pigot's has a Maltsters, Noble & Gillet, Maudlands.

I don't know where that is, in fact I nearly missed it, as it's under the miscellaneous.

Good luck!

Hi Emms

There is an area of Preston called Maudlands

Maltings might have been a common business in Longton

Duck,

Reference the other brewery in Longton, I've just come across an old copy of Ale Cry, (CAMRA's quarterly magazine), from Autumn 2006 which mentions both breweries.

"In the early 1900’s the then small village of Longton
was an interesting place for the beer drinker, with
two rival breweries being situated just yards apart
on Marsh Lane. Like Matthew Brown, both had come
into existence around 1830 when there had been an
important change in the country’s beer duty laws. The
smaller of the two breweries was JAMES PYE & SON,
based at the Longton Brewery and with a company
trademark of a boars head on a platter. Unfortunately
Pye’s was to survive only until 1905, when it was taken
over by Walmesleys of Preston, with the Smithy Inn at
Much Hoole being one of about 10 pubs which were
selling their beers.
The loss of Pye’s meant that neighbouring brewers and
maltsters W&R WILKINS were able to expand, and over
the years they were to build up an estate of over 20
pubs. Wilkins Brewery pubs were thick on the ground in
Longton and the surrounding villages, with the Golden
Ball being the brewery tap. In 1952 Wilkins Brewery was
taken over by Salford-based brewers Groves & Whitnall."
