The Brighton & Hove Albion journey began 115 years ago on 24 June 1901 and has culminated in promotion, on the 17 April 2017, to the top flight of English football, the Premier League. The beginning was here at the Seven Stars Hotel on Ship Street when the club was formed at a meeting…

Much as been written about the history of the football club here, here and here…so I won’t reinvent the wheel.

However, I will add to this story that there seems to be a family connection to Ship Street? I vaguely remember someone telling me that, (on my Mother’s side being the Boniface‘s) a Frank Boniface used to own Ship Street, lost it in a poker game and went to Australia. I will have to go back in my notes and check what I have, and of course investigate further. Family stories do tend to get embellished of course but somewhere in amongst it all lies the truth.
