Peter Bramley, yet another publican, kept the Old Spot in Daybrook. A rare hand at cards, as well as a noted runner and fives player, Bramley was considered a ‘blackleg and a man without any conscious’ due to his gambling, a man to be avoided.

After he died however it was discovered he was quietly quite generous and not as black as he had been painted.

A good batsman and fielder in the covers, he played from 1813 to 1826 and died in November 1838 aged 53.
