Some history of the Leopard Inn on Brearley Street in Aston New Town in Birmingham in Warwickshire

The Leopard Inn was a fully licensed public-house located at No.82 [pre-street numbering changes of 1883-4] on the south side of Brearley Street, about six doors away from the junction of Hospital Street. After the street was re-numbered the address was No.142, not to be confused with No.142 in the old numbering as that was the address of the Wonder Inn.

More information on the Leopard Inn on Brearley Street to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Leopard 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 Leopard Inn. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"An inquest was held yesterday, at the Leopard Inn, Brearley Street, on the body of William Atkins [70] labourer, 32 Court, 8 house, Brearley Street. The deceased had for some weeks past been suffering from a bad leg, but on Friday night, when going to bed, he appeared to be in good health. Early on Saturday morning his daughter, who was in an adjoining roots, heard him calling out for her. She went into the room, and found him suffering with pains in the throat. As he could not then speak, she ran for Mr. Prosser, surgeon. Before that gentleman could arrive death had taken place. Mr. Prosser attributed a mark of pressure on deceased's left nostril to the fact that deceased might have had a fainting fit, and, lying on his side, became suffocated. Verdict, "Death from suffocation."
