William T Tomlin and Mary Edith Tomlin, White Horse, 313 Ilkeston Road, Nottingham

Ray Farleigh writes:

Kelly's Brewers & Maltsters Directory of 1877 lists Thomas Vickers, Ilkeston Road as a small brewer. The Brewers Journal July 1887 had a gazette notice of a first and final dividend of 6s 4½d in the bankruptcy of Sarah Vickers, widow, licensed victualler and wine & spirit merchant of the White Horse Hotel, 313 Ilkeston Road. Then in the Country Brewers Gazette, 27 May 1897, the White Horse "home-brewed public house" for sale by auction on 16 June, for many years in the occupation of Samuel Malbon Hopkin deceased and now of his executors. H Edward Hopkin(s) in 1898; Mrs Mary Elizabeth Tomlin in Kelly's in 1923.

William T Tomlin brewing from 1898 to 1914, followed by Mary until 1926, almost certainly his widow.

When William Tomlin rebuilt the pub in 1912, he incorporated a plaque in the gable 'WT 1912'. Mary Tomlin sold the pub to Shipstone & Sons Ltd, who applied their name in mosaic lettering in the front lobby.

The pub is now in use as a cafe. The former brewhouse still stands at the back.
