Has anyone got any information on the Sun Inn 203 Bridge st where my great great
grandfather William Jones was the inn keeper in 1861. I believe it was demolished to build the dock tunnel entrance.

I can't say for certain it was demolished because of the Tunnel, but it seems most likely. The inn itself was on the corner of Bridge St and Park St. The number was 203/205.

205 was enumerated for the 1911 census and it's recorded having 5 rooms, this could have been the living quarters while 203 was classed as the business premises.

Like many other pubs in the area, the Sun Inn was used on occasions for inquests by Birkenhead Coroner, Mr Churton.

Birkenhead Assizes.
The 1864 snippet from the Cheshire Observer (if you can't see it) has Joshua Jones, Sun Inn, Bridge St, in possession of a greyhound that wasn't his, the bench expressed he wasn't aware it belonged to the complainant.

According to the Licence Registers The Sun Inn, then a Higson's house tenanted by Thomas William Rowlands, closed on 23/11/1931 having been purchased by the Mersey Tunnel Committee for demolition to make way for the new tunnel entrance.

Thanks to you both for the info, I do know that the it was sold by auction in 1882 for 3,280 and was then listed as Sun Inn plus house and warehouse. Joshua the greyhound nicker who was my great grandfather then went on to own the Beehive brewery and a Pub at Edge hill which was subject to a compulsory purchase order by the railways. He asked a licence sessions a for a transfer of his licence which was refused, and then refused again. He was then driven into insolvency with debts of 24,000 which was a tremendous sum in those days. So there ended the family fortune.

I remember my mother saying our family owned this Pub once. My great great grandfather was Samuel Jones from Llangollen. His family owned the mill there (now the Cornmill Pub). The same Jones family owned country produce stalls in the old market.
