Seven Stars Inn Seaton Carew

What we know about this image :

The Seven Stars Inn may have been built after George Pearson's New Inn in 1792 but is more likely to have been a converted cottage of an earlier date. John Corner appears to have been the first landlord with his daughter Elizabeth Hayes Good & her husband George following until George's death in 1873. Elizabeth, born c1830, carried on as landlady until 1899 when the Inn was sold. Elizabeth died in 1904.

The Inn was sold by auction on 8 June 1899 to Camerons and Co., West Hartlepool for the sum of £5200. In August an application was granted to rebuild the Seven Stars 'so as to make it a handsome building for the accommodation of visitors and others.' The new building was the Marine Hotel.
