This booklet was compiled by members of the Devon Family History Society in co-operation with the Devon Records Office. The booklet provides an extract of some information and further details may be obtained from the Devon Records Office. The register which is indexed here is for the division of Teignbridge. Most of the licenses were granted on 27th August 1872, with a few the following month, on 24th September. There were various types of licence which all had to be renewed annually: full licences, licences for the sale of beer either on or off the premises, refreshment licences (for alcohol to be consumed on the premises with a meal) and grocers’ licences. The register is divided into sections according to the type of licence issued. It records the particulars of the licence, the name and address of the premises, the name and address of the owner of the premises and the name of the licence holder. There are a few pages at the end of the register recording the transfer of licences in December 1872 and April and June 1873.
