  1. Hi Seán

    Tks for this

    Would you mind me asking something about the above......what do the names above represent? Are they the public licence holder or the person running the pub? I'm particularly interested in John Stone above. Any idea of where his pub was in Portlaw village and any other details? tks a mill
