Re: Henry Ibbotson. Filesmith Arms

There were two relevant advertisements in the Sept. 22, 1860 Sheffield Independent Sheffield
To be let, the Filesmith’s Arms … apply Bradley and Co, Brewers.

To be sold, … one undivided moiety or half-part of a valuable freehold farm, situate at Low Bradfield, in the occupation of Mr. Henry Ibbotson ….

Both had been advertised earlier.

Sheffield Independent Sheffield, Saturday, Mar. 30, 1861 the Filesmith Arms were again to be let “apply on the premises”

Sheffield Independent Sheffield, England

Filesmiths Arms again to be let. Apply to Messrs Hawson and Co

Sheffield Independent Sheffield, England
Saturday, May 3, 1862
Apply to Bradley’s Brewery

Sheffield Independent Sheffield, England
Tuesday, June 2, 1863
It is now the freehold that is for sale. The property is “now in the occupation of Henry Ibbotson”

Sheffield Independent Sheffield, England
Saturday, Aug. 8, 1863
The Filesmith’s Arms to be let. Apply Bradley’s Brewery

So Henry Ibbotson is at the Filesmith’s Arms by 1863, but tenure is still a bit shaky.

Hi Terry. Many thanks for all the info....have found Probate record that shows Henry (filesmith Arms) died 31 March 1897 followed by the 1901 which shows his wife Ann as licence Vitualler with son George as Barman which then link's with the death of George (filesmiths Arms) 1905.
