    May 1861/Bazil William Adnett/Incoming Licensee/../../East London Observer ****

    My interest in this pub are the Adnetts and James Lynch. James was the maternal uncle of Catherine Adnett. Through Old Bailey online I have discovered that Bazil Adnett had a pub in Westminster in 1840s.  An Adnett sister/daughter Jane Elizabth married Thomas Fitzgerald, cf family at Bulls Head Old Gravel Lane in 1871, They were also waterman/lighterman. The Lynchs were also stevedores. *

    This Basil Adnett  can be found at the White Lion, King Street, Old Gravel Lane as far back as 1841 with his father Basil Adnett as the victualler.
