Euxton - White Hart

Name: The White Hart

Address: Runshaw Moor, Euxton

The White Hart appears to have operated as a beer house from the 1850's, which made it older than its neighbour, the Plough although these days it is a dwelling as pictured later and the Plough remains a thriving business. 

Listed landlords at the White Hart, which was a beerhouse rather than a public house were Edward Pincock (1861-1881), William Kitchen (1891), Sarah Edleston (1897), Ellen Robinson (1901), John Winstanley (1910) and James Sutcliffe (1911).

1891 Census

William Hitchen is listed at the property on the 1891 census but is only recorded as a farmer and not a beer house or tavern keeper.  Having compared the other families living on the 1881 and 1901 census on Runshaw Moor I am satisfied that this is the White Hart but it remains unclear whether or not William was running it as a beer house; I suspect he was as it was an established business and had been run alongside the farm by previous landlord Edward Pincock.

Rate for Special Expenses Assessment made 13th October 1897 on the Township of Euxton, Lancashire showed the landlady to be Sarah Edleston; the owner was James Lupton.
