Some history of the Roebuck Inn on Bell Barn Road at Lee Bank, Edgbaston in Birmingham in the County of Warwickshire
More information on the Roebuck Inn on Bell Barn Road to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Roebuck Inn from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on the Roebuck Inn. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
"James Mullins, alias Wilson, who gave his address as London, and Alfred Johnson, Rea Street, each apparently about 25
years of age, were charged with housebreaking. On Monday evening Mullins was found upstairs at the Roebuck Inn, Bell Barn Road. In his possession were found a
"jemmy" and some skeleton keys. The other prisoner remained downstairs, and, according to the allegation, endeavoured to prevent the discovery and arrest
of Mullins. On the application of Inspector Black, the prisoners were remanded till today."
