Ship Inn - 1 Waterside, Halifax (closed in 1911)

Passing along Water-lane, we come to an old fashioned stone mullion windowed house, now known as the "Ship Inn" or "The Old Ship Inn”. There seems to be no date about it, but its architecture tells us it was built in the 17th century. Now called Waterside, this house and the pleasant “ings” that once lay around it were known to our forefathers as "Brookroyds" - the clearings by the brook.

In 1570, Brookroyds belonged to or was tenanted by a family of the name of Maud -Alice Maud, widow, and Robert Maud, her eldest son, owning it; but before 1595, the Gibson family had taken up their abode there, two Richard Gibsons, father and son, being then its owners and occupiers.

Siddal Tavern - Aspinal Street/11 Hardaker Street, Siddal (opened in 1869)

'Hello, I have a little history to share on the Siddal Tavern.  My great-great-great grandparents, John Crowther (b. 1820) and Harriett (b.1821) were the "Beerkeepers" at the Siddal Tavern on the 1871 census.  On the 1881 census, the Beerkeepers are my great-great grandparents, Joseph Crowther (b. 1847) and Mary (b. 1844).It changed hands some time after that, but I don't know if it was still run by family.Joseph and Mary's daughter Priscilla Crowther Collins is my great grandmother.  Priscilla and her husband John Collins immigrated to the USA in 1907 with their children.  Priscilla knew how to make beer on the stove, which she did during Prohibition :)  So, the family tradition was carried on.So glad I found this site!                                                         Bernadette Welsh'
