The premises in Daglingworth was probably a simple off licence and not a pub. The 1891 and 1903 licensing books do not specify the name of the business. There is some confusion over the tenancy and occupiers of the property. It is known that the tenant / landlord in the 1890’s, George Tibbles, died from pneumonia on 28th May 1899. Elizabeth Tibbles, his widow, remarried in 1903 to Hezekiah Curtis. However, Martha Curtis is listed as tenant in 1891. To add to the confusion there is an entirely separate beerhouse in the village listed in the 1891 licensing book of which details below are marked with an asterisk. I have no other information on the licensed premises in Daglingworth.
This page will be updated with additional (and hopefully clearer) information.
