JAMES FISH, Inn Keeper Windsor 1780 - 1800

James Fish (born 19th May 1746)

New Inn Hotel - Park Street New Windsor, a 15th century Inn 
(one of the oldest Inns in Windsor)
James & Sarah Fish ran the New Inn Hotel from 1781 - 1800

Confirmation above from the Sun Insurance records that James Fish held the New Inn in 1790

Record of the insurance held by James Fish in 1781 for the New Inn in Park Street New Windsor

It is known and recorded that King George III stopped at this Inn after hunting, so we expect that James & Sarah Fish would have served the King. (The royal stables were immediately behind the New Inn so that on coming back from the hunt the King and his party would dismount and may have come in for a drink.

James & Sarah Fish lived in Sheet Street - we don't yet know where, they ran The New Inn hotel in Park street, so they lived close to the Hotel.
