From Hereford Journal:
On Monday 21 September 1857  and on the following two days, on the instructions of the executrix, everything went up for auction. Included was the Inn with all fittings and fixtures, Bakehouse and two cottages. The list is quite extensive.

Sockett in Shropshire, Montgomeryshire, Herefordshire, Monmouthshire, Glamorgan and probably the rest of the UK
Corbet/t in Shropshire, Norfolk, Worcestershire
Gambold in South West Wales, USA, Australia
Baylis/s in Gloucestershire, South Wales

It seems astonishing that after this Elizabeth and William Lewis moved to Scotland and then later to Hackney when after the death of William Lewis she ended up in the workhouse. My great grandfather Walter Lewis born in Scotland ended up in an industrial school.
