Sheffield Landladies 1951-1990- help needed !

Recommended Posts

I am seeking names of landladies of Sheffield pubs during the above period. I have been working on a book for a few years and nearing completion and whilst I have a good breakdown of licensees (usually a man) the wife/ landlady has been lost in the midst of time as they do not appear on licensing records as it tended to be the male that held the licence. Can anyone share their memories of landladies either on here or by pm or emailing me sheffieldpubs at outlook.com - thanks in advance!

I'm not sure if we've communicated previously so apologies if we have and I'm repeating myself.

My former mother-in-law held the license of the Haigh Tree Inn on Bernard Street from late 1954 until it was demolished to make way for the construction of Hyde Park flats in 1959. At the time she took over the license she was the youngest landlady in Sheffield- I think she was 22 or 23.
