Hello, my name is Sue Wright and I am a newbie to the St Helens Connect group. 
I have been tracing my family history and have found that my Great Great Aunt on my Dads side (Martha Scarisbrick)  was the wife of John Rigby. 
I wanted to ask you where you got the information about the Transfer of Licences January 1890 from?
I know that they married in 1892 and were still the Licencees on the 1901 Census, but must have left the trade before the 1911 Census.
I realise that your post is dated 2009, so I hope I haven't ruined your day in asking questions about an "old post"

Kind regards,

James Rose was my gt-gt-grandfather. 

He took over the License at 'The Ship' after leaving 'The Hare & Hounds' on Liverpool Road/Tontine Street/Bridgewater Street.

Before going to the Friday Co-op dance in 1960, four of us sixteen year olds tried to buy our first alcoholic drink in The Sephton.
In the bar, after a long discussion, we decided we liked sherry because that is what our parents had in the house over Christmas and we had tasted it.
Having seen John Wayne ordering whisky with glasses we asked for a bottle of Bristol Cream and four glasses. The barman held his arm up, pointed to the door and said OUT. Memories!!!

In the late 60s I used to go every Friday night to listen to the singers and a pianist who could play every tune in the world in whatever key the volunteer was singing, "you hum it. I'll play it". Brilliant days with John Derbyshire controlling events by shouting "one singer one song" when people joined in the singing.
I had my stag party there in 1970 (well before travelling to Prague was the fashion) and had a great time - so I was told.

Do you know if it is closed for good (unlikely) or just between tenants/management?

I never heard it called that.
It used to have a date over the front, corner entrance...1902, I think. Is it still there? My long deceased uncle told me years ago that it was the same year as he was born.
