Ann's occupation: Inn Keeper in Winsham, Somerset. "The top pub, as it was always known, but its rightful name was The
George, was run by a very dear old lady named Ann Peadon, and it is of interest to record that she served in that house completely
unassisted until she was in her middle Nineties. I once saw in the trade paper that she was the oldest licence holder in the whole of the
country, and I well remember the occasion when the brewers made her a special presentation after she had held the licence for a certain
number of years. I also remember when the Great war started, a recruiting meeting was held in the Jubilee Hall, and volunteers were called
for, to serve in the Somerset Light Infantry. Men and boys came readily forward, the youngest being my own cousin who was barely sixteen,
but gave his age as eighteen,and served all through the whole war. The reason for recalling this incident is the fact that the very next
morning, all those who had registered, paraded at the village cross, outside of The George, where after the roll call, the transport
arrived, but before they left the old lady presented each and everyone with a pint of beer, and a silver sixpence, which of course had a
much greater value in those days when a pint of beer cost twopence and a packet of woodbines a penny. The George Inn was mostly patronised
by the older men, and cider drinkers, but all three pubs had their regulars, who rarely moved from their house of choice." From "The
Winsham I Remember" by W. H. Paull.
