WILLIAM MEEK 
beerhouse & shoemaker
* 1851 - 1864


As named in 1835 Register of Electors.

Note : William Meek ( 41 ) is described in 1851 as being a cordwainer, living at Three Hammer Common. In 1854, 1856 and 1864 he is confirmed as a beer retailer and shoemaker.
Although only listed as a shoemaker in 1858 and 1863 directories, Mr Meek is a beerhouse keeper and shoemaker in 1864. In 1865 and through to 1879 he is only referred to as a boot & shoemaker.

On Tuesday 27th July 1858 a brick and tiled Dwelling House, divided into two Tenements, each with about half-an-acre of well-planted Land, was offered for sale by auction. One was in occupation of Mr. William Meek, Beerhouse Keeper and the other by Mr. John Palmer.

On Friday 21st July 1882, the Cottage Residence, occupied by Mr. William Meek and known as Trowel and Hammer House, was to be sold by Auction.

Local knowledge suggests that Three Hammer Common gained its name from a beerhouse, said to date from the 17thC. 


The building still survives as a private dwelling.
