Does anyone know who/how I can find out who was the Landlord at Christmas 1921.

I have a 4 day old infant dying there on Boxing Day, parents not living at that address, but lived in nearby village.

Possible relations???

TIA.

Regards

Malcolm

Hello Malcolm

There are two sources that come to mind immediately.

Trade Directories - These can be found in libraries and archives and also online at the Special Collections Online on the University of Leicester web site.

There are also some trade directories on the two main pay as go web sites.  Search on the name you have and Cleobury Mortimer and see what comes up.

The other source you might like to try is the Cleobury Mortimer & District History Society

Hello Malcolm

Having looked at a couple of trade directories I can't find any mention of a New Inn at Cleobury Mortimer.

What is the source of your information?  If it is a death certificate is it recorded in the Cleobury Mortimer Registration District rather than the infant dying in Cleobury Mortimer?

Is it possible that the New Inn was in one of the villages nearby?

Don't forget that Cleobury Mortimer Registration District included small pieces of Herefordshire (to 1844) and Worcestershire (to 1934).  See the UK BMD list of Registration Districts.

Hi Mike,

Yes it is from a Death cert.

REGISTRATION DISTRICT  CLEOBURY MORTIMER

1921 DEATH in the Sub-district of Cleobury Mortimer  in the County of Salop, &c.

170 / Twenty Sixth December 1921 New Inn Cleobury Mortimer R. D. / George Henry Boraston / . . . . / T. W. Boraston Father In Attendance Nethercote Farm Neen Savage / . . .

I don't think there was ever an Inn at Neen Savage. Was there one at the railway station (where 'The Old Station' Business Park is now) or was the 'Blount Arms' renamed at some point in the past?

The only other possibilities are Bayton, there were relations at Nineveh or possibly Rock. However these seem a long way from Nethercote to travel for a pregnant woman, although the baby was premature.

The earliest memories I have of the area are from the mid 50s visiting my grandparents at Barbrook and being shown Nethercote, (where my mother was born), the Ford at Neen Savage, the Whirlpool and Papermill Cottages, (my grandparents later lived in one in the early 60s).

Regards

Malcolm.

Thank you Pete. I found the following as a result of your info:-

Cleobury Mortimer Aubrey Shropshire Directory 1925
New Inn, Lower St.
(from Parishmouse)  didn't give any names for premises.

THE REDFERN HOTEL, 10, LOWER STREET
Formerly known as: No.10 New Inn LOWER STREET. House, then Inn, now hotel. 
(from listed buildings site) It is actually now a private house alongside New Inn Row and next to The Bell.

 

Edit: corrected  Parishchest to Parishmouse
