One thought on “Mr James Smith (1801-1875)

  1. Can anybody help me with information on the following premises listed in James Smith”s Trust Capital Accounts dated October 1886, and if any of the establishments still operate as Inns/beerhouses, (I believe that james Smith only owned the buildings and did not operate them as businesses). Brown Jug Inn & premises Norton Road Stockton, sold 2nd June 1886, to Calder & Co for the price of 1400 Pounds, the following were listed as unsold, Beerhouses ;- “Cleveland Arms”, Hunters Lane, Stockton, “Morning Star”, Grey Street, Stockton. Inns ;- “Britannia Inn”, Trafalgar Street, South Stockton, “Ship Inn”, Trafalgar Street, South Stockton. Lynton Smith
