My great grandfather George Singleton was a licensed victualer in Liverpool. He got his license as a transfer from the family of the deceased Thomas Bunson and his Public House was on Queen Ann St and Wakefield St in Liverpool.
Liverpool Daily Post, 28 November 1862.
The city directories for Liverpool don't give the pub a name, just George Singleton at 2-4 Wakefield Street, corner of Queen Ann Street, living at 54 Roscommon Street. Later in the 1894 Kelly's Directory of Liverpool that pub at 2 Wakefield is called the Queen's Arms and is owned by Eubert Edward who lives on Ravenscroft. George Singleton now owns the Richmond Arms on Richmond Row. He is also there during the 1891 census.
