Can anybody suggest where I can find documented records for the period 1804-1822 of the keepers (publicans) of Flint Ferry Alehouse in Parkgate (Leighton/Neston cum Parkgate) Cheshire, which subsequently became the Ferry House in 1827 (A.J. MacGregor –Alehouses & Alehouse-Keepers of Cheshire), the Boat House in the 1850s and later the Pengwern Arms before being rebuilt as the Boathouse Tea Rooms in 1926 and now a pub/restaurant of the same name. I believe my great-great-great grandmother, Mary Davies (Née Bloor) was the publican during the period 1804-1821. She married John Davies, a draper, in 1804 but both are recorded as publicans in Parkgate in baptismal records of their children (St. Mary & Helens, Neston) in the period 1806-1814. John Davies died sometime prior to 1818 and Mary remarried George Barlow in 1819 and she herself died in 1821. A.J. MacGregor –Alehouses & Alehouse-Keepers of Cheshire records that a George Barlow was the publican of the Flint Ferry for one year (1822) but was succeeded by John Bloor, who was the publican from 1823-28. George Barlow moved on to become a publican in Heswell. This information from MacGregor suggests that Mary & John Davies were the publicans of the Flint Ferry Alehouse and that it passed to Mary’s second husband after her death before being ‘reclaimed’ by the Bloor family. However I would like to find some formal documentation of this and also try to establish the date of the death of John Davies. Any help or advice as to where to search for this would be much appreciated.
