Some history of the Royal Oak Inn at Ibstock

More information on Royal Oak Inn at Ibstock to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Royal Oak Inn from another page. As the website is constructed it is easier to create links as they crop up rather than retracing steps later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on the Royal Oak Inn. I have uploaded a photograph and newspaper articles and will return to this page when possible.

Thomas Carlyle

"When the oak is felled the whole forest echoes with it fall, but a hundred acorns are sown in silence by an unnoticed breeze."
Thomas Carlyle

"William Sharpe, Samuel Sharpe, James Sharpe, and Henry Ball, colliers of Ibstock, were charged with being quarrelsome and refusing to quit the premises of Joseph Norman when requested, at Ibstock, on the 27th October 1879. James Sharpe pleaded guilty; the others not guilty. Hannah Neale said she managed the Royal Oak, Ibstock, for the occupier. On the 27th October the defendants were there about 12 noon. At 2.30 they commenced quarrelling, and, after using bad language, got to blows. All fought with each other. She requested them to leave. Defendants refused, and remained half an hour fighting. William Sharpe asked her not to draw more beer, and did not fight at first, but joined in afterwards. Mary Ann Reed saw the defendants quarrelling. William Sharpe tried to keep his sons back as much as possible. When ordered out James Sharpe refused to go. The others did not go, and continued quarrelling for half an hour. Samuel Sharpe said he did not hear anyone order him to quit and Mrs. Neale gave him a pint afterwards. William Sharpe was dismissed, and the other defendants were fined 5s. and costs or seven days. Mrs. Neale was cautioned not to supply beer after she had ordered people to quit."
