Victoria Inn, Ross Road, Hereford
Does anyone know the exact location of this inn?
The first innkeeper was probably William Biggs (either senior or junior). The name of "Victoria Inn" seems to have been adopted after 1837. However, the inn probably existed at least 10 years before 1837. Various addresses seem to have been given for these two men - but I suspect that they were always in the same house. Addresses: Red Hill (which is near Grafton Lane), St Martin Street (at that time, St Martin Street included a large stretch of what became Ross Road), Ross Road. The Biggs family were growers of apples, makers of cider, and had a Cider Shop (which I suspect became the Victoria Inn). Victoria Inn itself was in the parish of St Martins but the stable & an outbuilding were probably in parish of St John the Baptist.
