Rising Sun Inn Ruspidge (General)

According to the 1871 census my ancestors William & Margaret Morgan lived at the Rising Sun Inn in East Dean, Margaret's occupation being Beerhouse Keeper. I have been unable to find any more info about this. Can anyone help?


returning to the Census image, very probably the one in Ruspidge

My transcription:-

1871 Rising Sun Inn, Lower Ruspidge

William Morgan 61 west dean
Margaret Morgan 61 pontypool
Samuel Morgan 22 east dean
Edmund Morgan 20 east dean
John Morgan 17 east dean
Margaret Morgan 10 east dean

Today's address and image
77 Ruspidge Road, CINDERFORD, GL14 3AW


In Ruspidge the New Inn and the Rising Sun, two of four inns at the bottom of Ruspidge Road in 1872, (fn. 86) remained open in 1993.
