Census details

Some aspects of John Barney Bales's life. John was presented with a splendid tea service, inscribed, 'presented to Mr John Barney BALES, Sergeant-at-mace, by the inhabitants of this town, for their high opinion of him as a public officer.13
Background information on Apollo Gardens, 96 Northgate Street, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England, - This was a public house, located between Apollo Walk and Apollo Terrace. John never appears in the list of publicans on http://www.norfolkpubs.co.uk, but a Thomas ELLIS does, in 1836. He may be a relative of Ann's.

A statement in 'Yarmouth Notes, says - May 26th.— The men employed by Messrs. Grout, Baylis, and Co., had an excellent dinner provided for them at J. B. Bales', Apollo Gardens.

Now known as the Appolo Tavern, she is still there, but oddly, one street view picture (2012) in Google has it operating, but the next one, shows her as undergoing refurbishment Jul 2014.14
