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 John Lydistt is 30 and a painter in Fleet Street. In 1851 there are no matching records.
The only other mention of Lydiatt in the website is John Lydiatt at the Lord Nelson, Smithford Street, in 1850 and 1851.
