Clarke J., Church Street, Helston
Dodd J., Broad Street, Penryn
Ellery J., Market Place, Camborne

It’s from Kelly’s Post Office Directory of Devonshire & Cornwall from that year.

We’re posting it here just in case some researcher Googling down the line might find it useful; we’ll be looking into the two listed for Penzance ourselves when we get the chance.

  1. I live in Hayle in Cornwall and there is still the Ellis’ Brewery building on Sea Lane. The Brewery was taken over by St Austells and eventually became a depot. It closed and was sold about five years ago. I know one of the former draymen who used to work out of the site when it was owned by St Austell. I can take photos if you wish.

    1. Thanks for the offer, Greg. We’ve actually popped over to Hayle from PZ and had a look at the buildings. Wish St Austell would revive the brand — would be lovely to drink Ellis beers in the Yacht Inn!
