Default The Lamb Inn Warkworth

The Lamb Inn, Warkworth. now where was that one?


County Courts: Alnwick
FINE FOR PERMITTING DRUNKENNESS.
Henry Lamb, landlord of the Lamb Inn, Warkworth, was charged with permitting drunkenness in his house on Saturday, the 28th ult. On that day there was a rabbit coursing, which was attended by a large number of pitmen from Amble, Broomhill, Shilbottle and other places; the lots were drawn at the defendant's house, and thither, too, most of the pitmen and other parties who were at the coursing reserted to when it was over. There was a great noise in the house, and police-sergeant Porter and P.C. Bowmaker, who visited the house about half-past eight, found it full of men drunk. They saw the same men come out shortly before ten o'clock. Mr Middlemas, solicitor, for the defence, contended that the noise resulted from the habit that pitmen have of talking in a very loud voice and from the natural excitement discussing the events of the day; that there was not sufficient evidence that any of the men were drunk, and that there was no evidence that any of the individuals mentioned by name as being intoxicated had been served liquor. He also pointed out that the police admitted there had never hitherto been any cause of complaint against the house.--The magistrates considered that there must be a conviction and that this was a very gross case, and fined the defendant 10. Including costs. The conviction was ordered to be endorsed on the licence.

[The Newcastle Courant Friday, November 10, 1876]





I think Middlemas was slighty ahead of his time here - but they just ignored him anyway

Just remembered I have a old bottle or two from Lamb's Brewery in Warkworth.

Which was in Brewery Lane - with the pub on the uphill side of the entrance from Castle Street. [ I looked at an old map ]

Default Drinking in Warkworth

My great grandfather was fined 20s in 1883 for being on the premises of the Masons Arms during prohibited hours on a Sunday. He claimed to have only stood on the doorstep and was cleaning the pigs out in the yard! An under cover cop bought several glasses of whisky from the landlord and saw two other men buying drinks. They were fined 40s.

Presumably the policeman just staggered away drunk with his notebook

Have the copy service papers for Lt Walter Lamb killed on the 1st day of the Somme. Son of the Warkworth brewer. Another son died during the war in the uk and is buried at Warkworth I believe.

Here is the dreaded telegram, and the Brewery notepaper which has an interesting trade mark.

On the subject of the Brewery bottles with embossed lamb trademark, I was convinced I had one of those but can't find it unless I have another box of old bottles hidden away somewhere.

Here's an Obit. for one of the senior Warkworth Lambs from the Morpeth Herald, Saturday 3 June 1905:



Mr. Henry Lamb, of Warkworth, died suddenly on Monday morning, at the age of 57 years. He was born at Belford, and went to Warkworth with his father, Mr. Thomas Lamb, in the year 1860, where they engaged in extensive brewing operations at the Warkworth Brewery. He retired from business a few years ago, when he passed it over to the hands of his brother. Mr. James W. Lamb. The deceased took a lively interest in public affairs. He was a member of the Alnwick Rural District Council and a member of the Alnwick Board of Guardians, Borough Grieve for Warkworth for 15 years, and was chairman of the local Conservative Association. He identified himself with the late Percy Artillery Volunteers, and on his retirement be held the rank of hon. captain and quartermaster. He was a Churchman, and a member of the Four-and-Twenty.

[This will be the same Henry Lamb being fined in the opening post?]

A brief mention is made about Lt. Walter Lamb being killed in the "Roll of Honour" published in the Newcastle Journal 11th July 1916:

WARKWORTH OFFICER KILLED IN ACTION. News was received yesterday by Councillor J. W. Lamb. Warkworth, that one of his sons, Lieutenant Walter Lamb, had been killed in action in France. The deceased enlisted in the Northumberland Fusiliers, and was connected with the machine gun section.

Something up here.

don't think they are brothers. You do get that impression though.

What is the age for Thomas Lamb on that headstone? Just can't make it out.

It was reported to the Notts Constabulary on Saturday that Second-Lieutenant Thomas Lamb aged 19, of the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry was killed on Friday whilst instructing men in hand-grenade throwing at a Notts camp. Sergt. Iverson and Private Bilney, who were alongside him in the trench, were very seriously injured.

The Yorkshire Post and Leeds Intelligencer, Wednesday 12 July 1916:

THE STRICKEN BRAVE.

....LIEUT. WALTER LAMB, Northumberland Fusiliers, killed, was the third son of Mr J.W. Lamb, of Warkworth, who also recently lost a nephew through a bomb incident.

Walter did have a brother 'Thomas', a chemist. He is alive and well in Oct 1916 and still a chemist and not in the forces, I know this because he is listed in Walter's intestate succession in his service papers.


this is the list:

Father.......Jas. W. Lamb..............59......Warkworth Acklington Northd
Mother.......Minnie Florence Lamb...51......Warkworth Acklington Northd
Brother.......Henry Lamb..............30......C/O Mr. Hollings, Burnside, Wallsend
Brother.......Thomas .................. 28......Chemist Foresthall N/C
Brother.......Jas. W......................23......Serving in France 2nd Lieut.
Brother.......John........................20...... H.M.S. Roxburgh Home Address
Sister.......Elinor Elisabeth..[sic].........17......Warkworth
Sister.......Minnie Florence..............15......Warkworth
Brother.......Cyril..........................13... ...Warkworth


Certified by James Fairbrother, vicar of Warkworth and dated 18th October 1916

Warkworth website is a bit misleading as they quote the Thomas, killed, as the son of JW Lamb.

Walter Lamb, born c. 1890, killed in 1916, son of James W Lamb, brewer of Warkworth. Thomas Lamb, born c. 1896, killed in 1916, grandson of Henry Lamb, retired brewer and son of Thomas Lamb (shown on headstone death 1898).

Henry and James W were brothers.

The Warkworth website have gone astray and misidentified Thomas as the brother of Walter when in fact they are cousins. It's easy done.

The headstone doesn't help matters by including Walter within a family headstone for Henry and his family.
