More about Thomas Stanley

Thomas Stanley was landlord of the Bull's Head in Audenshaw and was listed as a 'victualler' in Piggott's Directory of 1841 and' Victualler and Hat Manufacturer' in 1843. The Bull's Head is said to have been on the opposite side to the present day Blue Pig, but nearer to Ashton, and probably knocked down to make way for the reservoirs. Both his sons James and John followed him into the licensed trade, the latter owning his own brewery.
