Cider Flagon with the name Henry Chiles

A couple of interesting finds sent in by our friend Diana Bone. Diane has also done some great research regarding these finds which we have listed below.

My first search was Kelly's Directory and I have one for Hfd for 1930/31 = no result. Then onto Historical Directories
where I found:
Jakeman & Carver's Directory of Herefordshire, 1890 - Henry Chiles, Innkeeper, "No. 10", 142 Widemarsh Street, Hereford
Kelly's Directory of Herefordshire, 1885 - Henry Chiles, "No. Ten", Widemarsh Street, Hereford  - under Ale & Porter Merchants and Agents. Also under Wine & Spirit Merchants.
By 1895 "No. Ten" 142 Widemarsh Street (PH) is occupied by Humphrey Owens. It seems to be on the corner of Maylord Street and next to The Guildhall. On the other corner of Maylor Street is the Midlands Railway Co's Goods and Parcels Receiving Office.
From Kelly's Directory of Herefordshire & Shropshire, 1895. [Part 1: Herefordshire]
If the 10 on the jar was the "house number" then at some time it got changed to 142. (We know that Mill Street was renumbered at some point too.)
