Jane Bowering Takes in Boarders

SKEGNESS BATHING SEASON, 1786.

Jane BOWERING begs Leave to inform her Friends and the Public in general, that she has fitted up her house in a genteel Manner for the Reception of BOARDERS during the Bathing Season, who may depend upon being accommodated the same Terms at at Frieiston; and she will do everything in her Power to make their Stay agreeable. Every Favour will be ever gratefully acknowledged.

I don’t know much about Jane Bowering, except that her name appears on an old 1793 map of Skegness:
