This is the message we received:-
'I am doing research for a friend, and according to the 1891 census, John Medforth was Landlord of Poltallah Arms, Frith Bank Road, Sibsey. But this establishment does not get a mention in your wonderful insight to Sibsey- nor can I 'Google' it! Any thoughts would be gratefully received'
I had never heard of the Poltallah Arms as far as I knew there had been the White Hart, Trader Inn, Pied Bull, The Ship, The Peacock and the Star.
The first suggestion was Sibsey Northlands where Lord Poltalloch held land.
Lord Poltalloch was the son of the 14th feudal baron of Poltalloch in Argyll, educated at Eton and became MP for Boston in 1860, he resigned in 1878, after several other parliamentary posts he was raised to the peerage of Baron Malcom of Prltallochin 1896.
In 1870 he played football for Scotland in the 1st unofficial England v Scotland International.
He married Alice daughter of the 4th Baron Boston. He died 1902 in France, because both his marriages had been childless the Barony became extinct.
Several people mentioned The Malcolm Arms (once called the Oak Tree) on Frith Bank at Anton'Gowt.
