George Inn, Drybrook ? (General)

Unless it went under another name there don’t seem to be any references to the George in the BNA before 1893 when Solomon GRIFFITHS was landlord. However, thereafter, publicans were recorded as,

1899 John BARNARD
1906 Alice COX (Temporary transfer of licence from James H COX, deceased.)
1908 John WILCE (Temporary transfer from Alice COX)
1909 Alice COX
1910 John WILCE

In 1911 John WILCE received compensation from the County Compensation Authority after his licence was not renewed. This was a time when many pubs and beer houses were closed down as they were deemed “unnecessary” to provide for the needs of the public (1904 Licensing Act). Closure was due on May 2nd, 1911.

The information above was unknown to me, so thank you for this.

The pub / beer house was definitely known previously as The George Inn, according to the original documents we have but I have also been unable to find any other information. If we didn't have these documents I would never have believed it existed!!
