The surviving records for Cambridgeshire 1764-1828 are kept in the Cambridgeshire Archives in Ely and have been photographed and transcribed by members of the Cambridgeshire & Huntingdonshire Family History Society, which has licensed the records for the use of researchers on Findmypast. 

Each record normally includes:

  • Name of licensed victualler

  • Date of licence

  • Sign – this is the name of the public house, as displayed on the sign outside

  • Premises address – usually the town or village in which the alehouse was situated

  • Place – this tends to be a district or hundred within which the premises were located

  • Name(s) of the person(s) providing surety
