Liverpool History Society Questions

A selection of Liverpool history questions submitted to the Liverpool History Society

>Laurences Temperance Hotel, Clayton Square


>

Hi Rob,

Please can you tell me any details about Laurences Temperance Hotel, 21 Clayton Square. I know my ancestor William Michael Laurence purchased the lease when it was Browns Temperance Hotel about 1855, and that his son Thomas Davy Laurence took it over upon his father death in 1874.

Please can you tell me about the hotel itself, how many rooms and so on?

Are there any pictures of its interior or adverts of the time?

  1. Hello,

    as you can see from the directory scan above, the hotel was still in existance in 1890. I have been unable to source any photographs, but I am still looking.

  2. Hi Rob,

    Thank you for your quick reply. In the 1861 census only 21, Clayton Square was part of the Temperance Hotel. Maybe his son expanded into the uninhabited property next door.

  4. Hello Rob,

    Thank you for your work on my query.
    I noticed the map when I entered your site as you were answering a query about Cases Street. What other information is there about the Temperance Hotel, or how would I go about finding that information?

    Thanks again for your time and patience.

  5. Hello Paul,

    the main information you will find is from the Gores/Kelly`s trade directories and the local census. I do not know whther you will glean much informtion other than what you know already.
