Pub History

This pub is named after Ebenezer Elliott, the successful iron dealer born in Rotherham, in 1871 - famed as the 'Corn Law Ryhmer'.

Ebenezer Elliot was one of eleven children. He worked in the family's iron foundry for many years. His father also had an ironmonger's shop in High Street. When the foundry failed, Ebenezer moved to Sheffield, where he became a successful iron dealer and set up the Anti-Corn Law League. The Corn Laws kept the price of bread artificially high, causing great distress to the working classes. Elliott wrote a series of hard-hitting rhymes, quoted on political platforms all over the country during the campaign to repeal the Corn Laws. The much-hated, long-lasting Corn Laws were eventually repealed in 1846.
