About Dionis Coffin

In 1644 Tristram obtained a license to "keep an ordinary, sell wine, and keep a ferry" in Newbury, where the family had moved. In 1647 he got another license to do the same. The pub, "Coffin's Ordinary," was run by his wife Dionis; at the time brewing beer was a common occupation for women. In 1653 Dionis was charged with violating a law, passed in 1645, which said that beer could not be sold for more than two pence a quart. Her case was presented and dismissed when she showed that she was putting more malt in her beer than was usual, and that the beer should be sold for a proportionately larger fee. Her pub became known as "the place where the best beer was sold."
