Some history of the Britannia Inn on Brearley Street at Hockley in Birmingham in Warwickshire
The Britannia Inn was opened as a beer house and located at No.91 [pre-street numbering changes of 1883-4] on the south side of Brearley Street West, near the junction of Well Street. This house seems to have been re-named to the Rose and Crown, a bit confusing as there was already a house of that name in the thoroughfare.
More information on the Britannia Inn on Brearley Street to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Britannia 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 Britannia Inn. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
"On Monday or Tuesday last, from a bedroom at the Britannia beer house, Brearley Street, a gold Geneva watch, with gold chain and
heart-shaped locket, set with three blue stones, a gold Albert guard, with seal, three gold pins, a dress ring, and three white studs, with gold edges were stolen."
