John Lindley Simpson, of 41 Portland Street, Sheffield, died 31 January 1926. Probate to widow, Sarah Ann Simpson. Effect £833 18s 6d.

Here's an interesting burial record for John - the dates don't match but the description fits our man perfectly!. 13 Mar 1862 John SIMPSON Polisher and Beer house Keeper 32 F3 128 (general cemetery). Unfortunately this record (sheffieldrecordsonline.org.uk) is incomplete so can't check the other details.


Notes

"Chris Neale" Personal recollection: "John Cedric Neale told me he lived in his grandparents' pub as a young child." However possible death date for John Lindley Simpson of 1926 is year of Ced's birth.

Evidence for John Lindley SImpson keeping a pub.

Here are the directory records of him keeping a beer house:

Lindley SIMPSON Beer retailer 39 & 41 Portland Street Kelly's directory 1893.
L. SIMPSON Beerhouse 39 Portland Street White's directory 1911.
L SIMPSON Beerhouse 39 Portland Street White's directory 1919.
John L SIMPSON Beerhouse 39 Portland Street Kelly's Directory 1925.

(Was he known as Lindley rather than John? That would fit with the tradition of later members of Neale family)

Did Sarah Ann Simpson keep the pub after her husband died? Later it was kept by Allan Stacey. sheffieldhistory.co.uk forum (Sheffield Pubs):-.

Portland Arms 39 Portland Street
 : 1937 to 1939 Allan Stacey [ 39 Portland Street ]
 : 1942 Allan Stacey
 : 1944 Allan Stacey
 : 1948 Allan Stacey
 : 1951 Alan Stacey

Is this Alan Stacey related to Sarah Ann (Stacey) Simpson ? As far as I can tell he isn't. The 1939 register gives his dob 21/3/1888. He was still at 39 Portland Street when he died in 1951.
