Pineapple pub?

Was talking to my 81 yr old cousin just now and she said one of her grandparents used to run the Pineapple pub in Accy. She would like to know where it was, thinks it might have been in the Abbey Street/Manchester Road area.

Has anyone heard of this pub or does anyone know where it might have been?

Thanks

Sue

The Pine Apple Inn was 4&6 Elephant St, Accrington. Ann Mile was the landlady in 1891.

Re: Pineapple pub?

Thank you Walter for the info on the pub and thanks Margaret for pointing me to the Elephant street thread. What a helpful lot you are on Acccyweb!

I knew the name but couldn't place the street but if it was near Plantation St/Birtwistle St I must have walked past it hundreds of times in the 50s on my way to/from Central Prep school in Hargreaves St from the hospital area.

Sadly I couldn't see the pic associated with that thread but am speculating as Cashy did as to whether the Welcome Inn used to be the Pineapple.

If yeh went up Plantation St susie, Elephant St was on the right hand side, It actually ran just 1 block, From Plantation St to Birtwistle St. if they were the same pubs in same place, What a coincidence the landlady goin to the blackburn one.

I do vaguely remember it being a very short street, which lends support to the idea that there was only one pub, with different names at different times.

Re: Pineapple pub?

My cousin will be pleased to have located the Pineapple at least.

Her maiden surname was Tattersall and on Rootsweb I found mention of a John Tattersall living in Elephant street, don't know what number, at the 1851 census, not a publican but a calico printer. He was born in 1820 so would be quite a few generations before my cousin who was born in 1930. Will have to research this further.

*JOHN2 TATTERSALL (*JOHN1)1 was born September 18, 1820 in
Accrington, Lancs. England1. He married *ELLEN WELCH January 01, 1845
in St. James Parish, Accrington, Lancs. England, daughter of THOMAS
WELCH. She was born Abt. 1822 in Accrington, Lancs. England1.

Notes for *JOHN TATTERSALL:
Address: Elephant Street, New Accrington, Lanc., England on the 1851
Census, Age given as 30 years old.



More About *JOHN TATTERSALL:
Baptism: November 19, 1820, St. James Parish, Accrington, Lancs. England
Occupation: Calico Printer on 1851 census. Listed as printer prior to
1854, after 1857 listed as labourer.
Residence: Born at New Row, Accrington
