Wheat Sheaf, Christmas Street

I am researching Joseph Bolt, landlord of the Wheatsheaf (

Your page says he was landlord 1851 to 1866. I have found the record of transfer of lease away from him in 1866, but not of him getting the lease in '51. From other information I know about him, '51 would seem a bit early. What source was used for the 1851 start date?


Re: Wheat Sheaf, Christmas Street

Joseph Bolt is listed as licensee of the Wheat Sheaf in Mathews' Directory of 1853, which means he was there in 1852. I have now corrected the entry in the web site, thank you for pointing it out
