    Trying to help a friend, does anyone know the website about historical old pubs & the publicans , I know I've seen it but can't remember the name, all I can find is lost pubs but they are more recent & don't have any information about the publicans.

    Would it be deadpubs.co.uk? There have been some changes to that website, though.

    Then there is pub history.com.

    Perhaps post the details in the Brewers and Licences Victualler's section here and we can all have a rummage.

    Thank you Jan, I went to the dead pubs site but you get redirected to the pub history site & all I could find was to do with London, it does tell you the site has changed & I think it's a work in progress, some more info has been found by another & I will keep looking, if I need more help, I know where to come:)

    I haven't looked at what they have to offer, but how about the Pub History Society. I'm off to have a rummage......:)

    Local archives, of course, usually have the licensing records for that area. Depends where it is, and whether you might know someone taking a trip to that particular office.
