One of the problems that will be observed with the location of Penzance Public Houses and Hotels is not that the buildings kept moving but that the names of the streets changed.

In addition, the following are included in the 1793–1798 Universal British Directory without premises names either as innkeepers, taverners or victualers:— Richard Bramwell, Thomas Broad, John Heath, Henry Matthews, John Matthews, Joseph Mitchell, William Mitchell, Susanna Phillips, John Prian, James Reed, Sampson Reynolds, Nicholas Reynolds, Richard Videley & Thomas Vigurs.

In the 1891 census there is a William Friggens, retired publican in No. 3, Leskinnick Street. This is not the one from the “William IV” Madron who was still in residence but is possibly the one from the “One and All” above as they were different people. There is also a James Skewes, Licenced Victualler, Jamaica Place but the house is not identified.
