INDEX OF BRISTOL BREWERS
AND BOTTLED ALE AND PORTER DEALERS
(P)*Abraham, John & Joseph: (Agents to Beamish &
Crawford, Cork) Cooper's Hall, 32 King Street, c.1842-1852.
This project will be a huge undertaking so I have
begun with a preliminary list, to illustrate the size of the task
involved and to serve as a temporary index. I will link this to
individual pages as they eventually get researched, the list at the
moment is very incomplete but is just a working document. Blue links can
be clicked on.
This index is compiled largely from directories
dates spanning 1775-1938 (see below), where they were available, and the
reliability of street numbers, personal name spelling etc. is dubious in
places. Directories do not always agree with each other and I have put
alternatives in brackets. The disparity may clear up on further
research. Also many companies traded outside the date range covered by
the directories I have used, or may not have been listed in a particular
directory because for instance they did not feel the need, or did not
want to pay. The dates here are therefore just a guide, some companies
traded for much longer. I am collecting directories all the time and
adding to this index as I go along, so more to come hopefully. I may
have included a few publicans, more information on pubs can be found at
Lost Pubs website.
