The OAK HOTEL & manager is James T Blanchflower.


Cathy ( familyhistoryfinders.co.uk ) advises 20/06/2010 :-

The Royal Oak Hotel was and still is in Chapel–en-le-Frith in Derbyshire. The photograph was taken before 1910, as James Thomas Blanchflower died that year. His wife Esther (nee Mills)  carried on as manageress of the hotel after his death.  James, although born in Surrey in 1861, was the son of James Blanchflower from Watton, Norfolk.

He joined the 16th Queens Lancers in 1885 and was discharged in 1890. After his discharge he became a valet to Herbert Dugdale, a captain in the same company who was from Derbyshire.  He then went on to become a cellarman  in Gerald Street, Derby, before moving to the Oak in Chapel-en-le Frith.


 



 The BELL
has licensee James Vaughan
and is selling MANNINGS Noted ALES & STOUT.

Credible evidence uncovered by Bunny Linford-Hazell suggests that this scene was at LILBOURNE RUGBY, Northamptonshire.
However the Bell in that village looks totally different.
Did the house get rebuilt or drastically altered in the mid 1900's ?

LILBOURNE is confirmed by local historian Julian Chatwin 20.07.2010
The house had ceased trading by c2000 and is today a private dwelling.
( Looking much different from the above image )

 

Many thanks to all
