Hi all.

Has anyone any info on the Queens Hart 62 Greenfield Road Harborne which I assume is a Pub.
My relative James Mole is down on the 1911 census as living there where he is described as a Bricklayer jobbing and publican I have travelled up that road many times since the 1970s and cannot recall a pub.

Many thanks Steerboy.

Gone, but not forgotten.
1913 Kelly's lists 62 Greenfield Rd Harborne, Mole James beer retailer.

By 1821 there was no mention of a beer retailer in the road. going back, there is a beer retailer at 62 in 1888, and previous to that a beer retailer is in the road, but no numbers are given

Hi PMC1947,Bammot and Mikejee.

Many thanks for your input the mystery deepens but your Kelly's info gives me a good point to start when next I'm at the Central Library.
The main thing that is confusing me is the name Queens Heart which is on the 1911 census which never appears again it seems.

Thanks again regards Steerboy.

Hi, this is a late reply as only just seen your post! I lived at 64 in the 90's and a neighbour opposite told me he had the stain glass doors from the pub, which was being converted to a council house, and installed the in his place, The deeds to my house included a clause that I couldn't use my property as a public house, assume it was because 62 was a pub. Once, when I was installing a fence posts in the back garden between the houses, I broke in to a large sealed off cellar which I assume was the beer cellar. Glad to have read your post confirming it was a pub and always wondered what it was called.

Hi Lady wood1. Just to say how interesting your post was after all this time. My interest was in James Mole who became a publican after returning from Queensland Australia with his wife and children in about 1900, can you imagine the culture shock after those sunny days in Oz to be in his first pub here which was in Dartmouth St on his children all born in Queensland. I have never discovered why he did this as his parents and seven brothers and sisters followed HIM out to Oz in the late 1860s.
Many thanks for the info. Acklam19. ( Steerboy).
