LETTER: Trying to trace Saltfleet family history

Hello we have hit a snag trying to retrace our family history.

My husband’s grandfather Michael Thomas Howard gives his address as the New Inn in Saltfleet Lincs.

Michael was born in Colchester, Essex, and served in West Riding regiment before residing in Brighouse W Yorkshire.

The “mystery” surrounds the fact why the New Inn as his address.

We have struggled to find out the history of the inn and wondered if any of 
your readers could enlighten us?

For instance was it used as a Barracks. Also is it still open? If it is who is now in charge of it .

Internet is not helping or maybe I’m looking in the wrong places.

Many thanks
