Historic Interest

Also listed at Whitten rd (in 1839) & as a 1830s brew pub. A report in the Ipswich Journal** on 16 Oct in 1847 states that : For sale, the Capital Public House called The Rose & Crown, with Brewery & Stables attached, situate in the Norwich Road, St Matthews, Ipswich. My Parents Charles & Hilda Elvin were the licensees from 1944 to about 1948, after being bombed out of the <strong>Malthouse Pub</strong> in Ipswich. My sister Mary was born at the Rose & Crown on the 13th July 1946 & it has been suggested that she was the only female child ever born there? We moved to New Zealand in 1950 & I currently reside at the Gold Coast in Queensland Australia. <em>(information from Geoffrey Elvin)</em> Photographs of this pub and more up-to-date and detailed information about it can be found at
