More information on the Bricklayers' Arms at Tamworth to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Bricklayers' Arms 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 Bricklayers' Arms. There is information on Staffordshire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"The marriage of Mr. Egbert De Hamel, tape manufacturer, of Tamworth, to Miss Ernestine Donovan of Hawkhurst, Sussex, was on Thursday morning solemnised at Hawkhurst. In the afternoon the workmen connected with the factory, in George Street, Tamworth, were entertained to a very excellent dinner at the Bricklayers' Arms. Mr. Joseph Smith occupied the chair, and Mr. Jabez Russell vice chairman. The healths of the bride and bridegroom were duly honoured, and the evening, at the Town Hall, a 'knife and fork' tea was given to the females employed at the factory. This was followed in the evening by further festivities in the form of dancing etc. An excellent string band under the leadership of Mr. A. Jones was in attendance, and free refreshments were provided by Mrs. Pemberton at the Bricklayers' Arms, who was also responsible for the dinner and tea. Over 200 were entertained during the day, and that the proceedings were carried through without the slightest hitch, reflects great credit upon the management of Mr. J. Jones, and Mr. T. Lunn, under whose supervision the arrangements were carried out. The proceedings, which apparently had afforded the greatest enjoyment to all concerned, decorously terminated about midnight. The happy pair are spending their honeymoon at the Isle Wight."
