Licensed Victuallers Database

Introduction

This database contains details of the licensed victuallers in Warwickshire from 1801-1828. The information comes from the series of registers Victuallers’ Recognizances, QS 36/13-17. The database was created by record office volunteers.

The database does not contain images of the registers, but they are available to view at the record office. The documents are not suitable for photocopying, but you are welcome to photograph entries with a digital camera.
