Spot the Difference #115; Ward & Son Ltd, Foxearth or Sudbury

Two very similar Special Family Ale labels from Ward of Foxearth, which appears to have experienced a change of county. This could cause a serious problem for those of us who display their labels by county.

  • The reference to Sudbury on the first label is probably because postal addresses were supposed to include the post town, which might well be in a different county. I assume that Sudbury was the post town for Foxearth at the time the label was issued, though I have a directory from around the turn of the century or perhaps a little earlier which shows Long Melford as the post town for Foxearth. Notwithstanding that, the important point is that Foxearth is in Essex, and it always has been.

  • I seem to remember reading that Ward’s of Foxearth operated two breweries at one point in their history , I’ll try and dig up a bit more info on this one and post an update as soon as possible,
    Cheers
