Hurley, East Arms Hotel
I would like any information on the East Arms Hotel, which stood at the southern end of Hurley High Street but was demolished to make way for a housing estate,around 2002 I believe. My 2xGt.Grandmother's brother William Deacon is shown on the 1891 Census as Proprietor of East Arms Hotel. He was still there when he died in 1894.I would like to know who was the next Propietor but any info would be welcome.Also anything about the gymkana area that was opposite the Hotel,as the Deacon family were involved with horses in various ways.Many thanks.

I am researching my mother's family and know that my Gt.Gt.Grandmother Sarah's maiden name was DEACON b.circa1826 in Denchworth, Berks. I have "lost" her between the 1841 Census, living in Hurley with her parents & siblings;& 1861 Census living in Bishopsgate, London as Sarah Coande, widow with 4 children. For various reasons I believe Coande to be a ficticious name, an anagram of Deacon. Although it could be Irish (linked to Cowan?);my mother and aunt said there "was suppose to be Irish in the family" although they knew no details. I have gone back further with the Deacons & I know a fair amount about Sarah's children and her death but l want to know what happened to her between 1841-1861. Also never found birth registration or baptism for her first 2 children, Mary Jane and Selina Ann. I am very much an enthusiastic novice researcher, helped by an experienced friend who has had family history as her main pastime for 25 years. I have always been interested in history and try to put the facts we find into the context of social conditions and attitudes of their era. So I have have occasional "flashes of inspiration" (wild ideas!) and my friend usually proves them wrong OR sometimes we get a breakthrough. If anyone can shed light on the mysterious Sarah - & completely elusive "husband" - I would be delighted! Thank you. Sylvia.
