Harvey family

Martin Harvey commented (Mar 14th 2015)

My daughter has been researching our family history and found the Old Ilkeston website. John Harvey, the landlord of the Three Horse Shoes, who died as a result of injuries sustained when being hit by a horse and carriage in Nottingham, was my great grandfather. His son William was my grandad. William became landlord of the Three Horse Shoes. He also, I believe, had Little Hallam farm. He met his second wife, my grandma, when she was a barmaid at the pub. She was 20 odd years his Junior. They had 7 children together and moved to Doncaster to live in the mid 1920s.
