Board, Priory Row

Priory Row C1900 Board means 'to board intoxicating liquor'. In some cases the need for a premises to have 'a board', that is a sign board, suggested this name as some places did in fact display a blank board. However, in this case, the Board identified a person sellling beer from their home; in other words a beerhouse under the 1839 Beerhouse Act, the real origin of the 'public house'. These premises are only known from the Licensing Justice's Register Volume 1, 1878 - 1898, when the licensee was James George Collins Graham. In the 1871 census he is a 20 year old wine merchants assistant living with his uncle, Daniel Edward Collins, at Old Road, Whitley. Priory Row was a desirable address, so I think the premises probably were a wine merchants. Left: Priory Row in the early 1900s. The photographer nowadays would be standing inside the New Cathedral !
