I can't help with the location, EWW, but I have some info. about the proprietor. Ernest Bertie Potter was born in 1882 to Francis Potter and Margaret, nee Jaggs. In the 1891 census he was living in Sir Lewis Street and in 1901, by now a barber, was in Bentinck Street. (Incidentally, there's no reference to him in Kelly's of 1900.) Ernest married Maud Mary Wright in 1915. In the early 1920s, electoral registers show them at "Late 'Black Goose Inn'", which I understand stood at 6 St. Nicholas Street and lost its license in 1909, before being demolished c. 1937. Maud died in 1924 and Ernest in 1931, by which time he appears to have been in the workhouse.

Thanks KTL. Do not know if Maud in in my Wright line or not but I do have a drawing of the old Black Goose pub.
The gateway into it and Bennetts yard is still in St Nicks street. The pub was the headquarters of the press gangs.

According to Trues Yard, Potters shop was located on St Nicholas St.

In the 1911 census, Ernest gives his address as Black Goose St., although it says St. Nicholas St. on the enumerator's schedule. I've seen on another thread that the two streets were one and the same.

Yes it was Black Goose St from 1740 to 1819. Some of our old streets still have both old and new names on the street signs.

Norfolk family names being researched;

Potter, Turner, Tee
Belson, Hart, Lake
Crisp, Youdell, Creek
Browne, Heugh, Skoyles
Barcock, Norman, Sadd
CAN YOU HELP ME WITH ANY OF THESE NAMES?
