Name: Carly Sandoe
Subject: Joseph Rushbrooke b 1799, Publican of the Cromwell Arms House
Message: Please contact me by email or Ancestry (username AncestryCESB) to connect. Joseph was born in Great Yarmouth and married thrice (with some children emigrating to America). He was the Publican of a brewery located in the Oliver Cromwell house during the 1840-1870s and died an inmate in the Ely Union Workhouse in 1879. I’m seeking information on his parents, possibly Joseph Rushbrook b 1776 (?) & Leah Dearsley b 1771 of Ashill, Norfolk.
