New Inn Brighstone Isle Of White - a Memory of Shalfleet.
I have found out my gt gt grandfather ran the New Inn in Brighstone. His name was Job Hawker, his wife was Lucy, she was a Gillingham. I know his residence was the New Inn at the time of his death in 1924. I also have many postcards of Brighstone and Newport around the 1900s.
