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!
