Researching a pub

I have been researching one of our local pubs where i live. Its been really interesting. All the different proprietors over time and all the goings on that comes with pubs.

One of the first proprietors [1874] i have been able to find is a man by the name of ......
Ah Chop :eek: Obviously chinese. Then a fella by the name of Dittman, [1890's] tracked him a little and it appears he was German.
Also a woman who was a boarder at the pub [1889], had a argument with her lover and tried committing suicide
by consuming " rough on rats" She luckily survived.

Wonder what i will find tomorrow :biggrin:
