Crooked Billet.
Definitely a pub and quite a popular one too, forty years ago.

Happy New Year to everyone from NZ,

Does anyone know if there are any records regarding the National School at
Southend for the period 1820's to 1860's. I have looked on ancestry for
the names of the schools in either Southend or Prittlewell for this time. My
JEMSON family was living in Southend at this time so I assume that the children
may have attended this school. The directory lists only the National School,
Southend, William McDonald , Master. Mrs Janette McDonald was mistress of the
infant school.
I have checked out SEAX for any records but there do not seem to be any for
this school.

One more thing, does anyone know what "Crooked Billet" is referring
to? In the 1851 directory for Leigh under WILLIAM HAY it has this written beside
it. The list is under tradesman. I am presuming it is a pub but thought someone
might know for sure.

Thanks in advance.
