Publican Robert H Jones
« on: Sunday 31 October 21 00:25 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone, I've been reading through all the information I've found in the past to look for new leads. One of my ancestors - Robert Halsall Jones - is listed in his sons baptism record on 5th Oct 1856 as being a Publican. The record does not give an address but the baptism was at St Mary the Virgin, West Derby.

Can anyone enlighten me about where this may have been?

I have lots on Robert but nothing about this and he is not a publican any other time. In the 1861 Census he is living with his wife Catherine Parr Jones nee Palmer and family at 13 Wavertree Vale, West Derby. I cannot find the family in 1851 - he is not with his mother, Mary Jones at 52 Breck Lane and wouldve only been 16 at the time as he was born in 1835 in Everton.

Thanks, Luke

1861/1871 census says he was born Oxton Cheshire.

His wife was Catherine Palmer Parr daughter of William Palmer Parr re: marriage

His brother Uriah Jones married Mary Ann Palmer 7 September 1856 West Derby

This has nothing to do with Derbyshire. West Derby is in Liverpool, which was in Lancashire back in the day.

Unless he is mentioned in any newspaper item your chances of finding where he was a publican are slim to nil.  Son George's birth around 1854/5 does not appear to have been registered & I can't find a baptism as the address & occupation may have been helpful.
