A quick trip to my local seondhand book shop and £2 bought one. It is very interesting , the reference to the Inn is only four lines long but gives me a little m...

I was told by my Nan that Black's got its name from the fact that Leo Black {Also known as Blackstock,Blacklock or sometimes Leo Martin} used to play the piano there in the silent days.

Re: Can you help info about Morpeth

It look as if the Inn is now called "The White Swan" Newgate Street, Morpeth. The 1911 cencus gives the address which is the same as the White Swan.I would like to know if that stirs anyones memory on what they might have heard over the years.


Thanks

Re: Can you help info about Morpeth

Just got my Grans marriage cert back and the pub was called the King Crispin Inn on Newgate Street. She lived there in 1903 onwards and the Inn is shown on the O.S. for 1896.

Thanks for the info. I undestand that the Inn was in Morpeth Village its self. I have done a lot of searching as well and can not find any ref to it. It is shown on two certificates I have as their address.

Thanks for taking the time to reply.

Can you help info about Morpeth

As part of tracing my family history I have found one line that lived in Morpeth from abt 1875 - 1950. Because we then lived abroad we never saw them and I know nothing much. Their names were Cook and the family lived in a pub/inn called St Crispins and later at Ladies Walk. Does this pub still exis...

Re: "Bridlington Queen" Remember her?

Hello and thanks for the info. It was my uncle's firm Watercraft that built her and I can't understand it as the article says she was built in 1947. Stories to me over the years said she made three trips to Dunkirk during the war. I know my cousin has the original plans still and I will see if he ca...
