Some history of the Three Horse Shoes at Rushall in Staffordshire
More information on the Three Horse Shoes at Rushall to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Three Horse Shoes 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 Three Horse Shoes. There is information on Staffordshire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
"John Eaton, landlord of the Three Horse Shoes, Rushall, charged Thomas Emery with an assault, and with refusing to leave
complainant's premises on the 21st of April last. Emery came in a quarter before ten at night, and at first he was told he could not have a drink, but on
his promising to quit as soon as he had taken it, some was drawn for him, and the landlord went to bed leaving his wife up. When Emery had finished the ale
he wanted more, which Mrs. Eaton objecting to fetch, he used the most violent language. The landlord was called up, and on his coming downstairs a scuffle
ensued, the defendant striking him violently several times. The Bench fined Emery 2s. 6d. and costs, and in default of payment he was committed for a
fortnight to Stafford gaol."
