The Next Generation of Barnett Leaches

Barnett Leach IV (1764-1814), son of Barnett Leach III, followed his father as Master Cook of Trinity College. He also worked as a ‘bacon dealer’ and ran the Pickerel Inn on Bridge Street.
When he died in 1814, his wife Margaret took over the inn – innkeeping was one of the few businesses in which a widow could earn an independent income at that time.
