An Article that mentions the Inn.

https://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/news/4559524.Tracing_the_past_of_Canada___s_distant_cousin/

Very interesting article.  My grandad, Benjamin Hardman was born in 1884 in Quebec.  By 1901 the family were living in Esh.  The family were all miners.

Mining was pretty much the only employment in Hamsteels and Quebec.  Other than that there were a few service jobs (pubs and shops) and a few farming jobs.

Carol & BumbleB

For some pits it is an absolutely priceless source where you can even contact lots of people who are also researching specific miners.  There are often detailed reports of the men who were killed in the pits, the management etc.  In this case the 1867 owners actually built both villages and the pubs in them.

Whether it is mining or any other industry, it is good to see that records have been kept and that they are now available to descendants.  It all adds to the knowledge (good or bad) of our ancestors and the lives they had to lead in order to survive.

I agree...and where would the general public be without the fuel they mined, working in such extremely difficult and dangerous conditions. Respect

The Durham Mining Museum site is excellent. My grandad, Benjamin Hardman who I mentioned earlier died in 1921 through wounds from a pit accident.  The site has all the details including the compensation paid to his widow, my grandma
