Pubs. The Albert, Chipping Hill

This is taken from the great history of Essex pubs that was compiled by the late Ian Hunter. Kevan now looks after it all. I’m very grateful to him for providing me with the Witham information, and allowing me to include it here.

***** I see that Kelly’s Directory have made an error. My grandfather’s name was Ernest Edwin Askins, not Ernest Edward Askins. (I have a copy of his birth certificate). He was born 6.8.1878 at 16, Great Hermitage Street, St. George in the East. His father was Ernest Albert Askins.

Ernest Edwin Askins was the licencee of this pub until he died on 28.10. 1934 having taken it over around 1911. After Ernest Edwin Askins died, his widow Elizabeth Askins moved out of the Albert and went to run the Bell Inn in Danbury. Both Ernest Edwin and his widow Elizabeth are buried in Witham.
