Travellers Rest, Stowe 1871 (General)

by KBeech20, Tuesday, April 28, 2020, 17:37 (265 days ago)

I have been researching my family tree for some time and have previously visited the area to find where the Travellers Rest would have been located. I have viewed a previous post on here which showed a OS Map of the area and a gentleman stated where the building would have resided. However, I am now on the look out for photographs of the building (if possible). My family were the Pritchard's (William and Sarah) living in 147 Travellers Rest at the time of the 1871 census. If anyone is willing to share any information or photographs from that time that would be great.

Thank you.

Just for info.

The Pritchard's are No. 147 on the Schedule - which obviously isn't the house number.

The Enumerator's Notes, on the first page, state

'All the part of the Parish of Newland which is in the Tything of Coleford, comprised in Boxbush Road, Bowen's Hill Rd., Victoria Road, Staunton Road, Scowles, Scowles road, Highmeadow, Millend Lane, Whitecliff and Rock Lane.

Page 15 - states, end of the Town of Coleford

just 5 houses abode listed as Travellers Rest.


Quick check on the Advance Search for baptisms, - residence: Travellers Rest

2 March 1832

Jeremiah (Innkeeper) and Sarah TRIGG - had a daughter, Sarah Anne, christened at Coleford, residence: Travellers Inn Rest, Whitecliff


On the 1871 Census, No. on Schedule, 143,

Travellers Rest, - Henry BURTON, head mar, 33 - Innkeeper & Labourer

so the Pritchard's where near the Travellers Rest Pub....

From the Census entry for the PRITCHARDs this pub was clearly in Whitecliff, (although there was a Traveller’s Rest at Stowe as well). The Gloucestershire Pubs site has an entry for it. I can’t post a direct link to it but pick Coleford Section 4 from this one.

British History confirms that it was known as the Traveller’s Rest until the 1830s and thereafter was called the Nag’s Head. The old name must have remained in use for the general location.

It’s marked as the Nag’s Head on this map,
