Researching Your Brewery and Publican Ancestors


No free samples but a chance to find out more about the sources to use if you have a publican or a brewer in your family tree.

The public house used to be a centre of the community and innkeepers were often respected local figures. In addition, most towns and villages had a brewery or two providing beer to slake everyone's thirst - from princes to paupers.

Simon Fowler covers the main sources to use if you have a publican or a brewer in your family tree. He also looks at the changing nature of the public house, from a simple beer house to a gaudy gin palace. Unfortunately, there are no free samples!
