No name, (Yew Tree Cottage, Churchend GL2 7BL)
The licensed premises could have once been at Yew Tree Cottage, Churchend, in the middle of Slimbridge village. There are notes in the 1891 licensing book that state that the owner of the beer house married the tenant’s daughter.
I received an e-mail from Kathleen Wye in Sydney, Australia who wrote: ‘could the pub with no name at Slimbridge be at Yew Tree Cottage, Churchend, Slimbridge GL2 7BL? My Great Grandfather in the census reports of 1851 and 1861 was listed as a beer house keeper. His name was Thomas Cornock. His grand daughter took over the house on his death and married Emmanuel Hobbs in 1891. She died in 1929.’
