  1. My paternal grandmother was Beatrice Warhust Kirk before she married my grandad Robert Casey June 1917, wonder if she was related to Kirks who opened the brewery. Grandad Robert had served with the Kings Own Scotish Borderes, served in France/Gallipoli and back into France for the Somme offensive, he was wounded 1st day of battle 1916 April, another family associated with my Casey’s were a family called Dutson, they were publicans not sure if they had a pub in early stockton pre war 1914-18.
