Here is what we think is the only comprehensive record of pubs and beerhouses within the Coventry city boundaries going back as far as available records allow. This is an ongoing project so contributions, corrections or additions to this archive, especially anecdotes, photos and media are most welcome. Feel free to contact us for a pint and a chat anytime.
In the 1841 census Henry Dawson is 40 and a carpenter in Siler Street. In 1851 he is 60 with the same details and in 1861 there are no matching records.
This is the only reference to Dawson in the nineteenth century in the website.
