I wondered if anyone can tell me if they know of a Joan Wynn Lived in Biknehead. She used to own a Pub
(I have been told the Victoria lodge in birkenhead) In the 1950s/60s
Shes was my great Nan (God Rest Her soul)
And I would love too see if anyone has any information on the Pub or any Photos?
The victoria Lodge is at 83 victoria Road and in the 1950s/60s was owned by the West Cheshire Brewery Co. The Licence Registers show the following Wynnes as licencees:
William Wynne 3/8/1938-11/6/1941
Alice Wynne 11/6/1941-13/2/1946
William Wynne 13/2/1946-at least February 1963
William and Alice are listed as married, so it seems that the wife took over running the Pub
whilst her husband was away during the War. The Registers unfortunately don't go beyond 1963, so there's no mention of a Joan Wynne, but I would guess that she may have been William and Alice's daughter and took over the licence when her father died?
