SHOVEL AND BROOM, Bridge Street

SHOVEL AND BROOM
Bridge Street   (north side of)
Could be synonymous with the "Hen and Chickens"
*
MINE HOST:
1812                   James Wilcock 
1832 - 35           Joseph Barton
*
In 1838 there was a Joseph Barton at the "Hen and Chickens" in
Fox Street.  There was also a "Hen and Chickens" in Bridge Street.
My records for those premises run from 1838, but it is possible (in 
fact I think probable) that this is the same man who repeated the name
of his beer-house.
