Historic Hotels, Inns and Pubs of Helpringham

Introduction

Hotels, Inns and Pubs often provided rooms for travellers. They were often constructed:

The value to the family historian occurs when you can find someone from your family who is "missing" from home in the census, or who has been hired from their parish to work as a maid or server in such an establishment. You will find some people worked for years at one place, only to be "promoted" by moving to another such establishment.

If you have any additional history on these Public House, Inss and Hotels, I will be pleased to add it or a link to it.
