London historical street directory and pub history

This is now an updated and complete, historical London street directory for 1832 and 1842 and more

George, Broadway, Barking

Barking pub history index

This pub was established by 1609. It was rebuilt in 1893 in the form shown in the photograph. In 1961 the pub was again rebuilt, moved, and was renamed the Captain Cook (listed separately). The George was derelict in the 1960s and was demolished. The Captain Cook was built in a different location near the new town Hall so did not replace the George on its original site. *

A listing of historical public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in Essex. The  Essex listing uses information from census, Trade Directories and History to add licensees, bar staff, Lodgers and Visitors.

What I am now attempting to achieve is the coverage of an earlier London street directory in 1832. This is unique, plus images of the 1842 Robsons directory which confirm earlier entries and also carry much more trade detail about a premises or person. Here is the index of streets in 1832, many with 1842 imagery added.
And next is the complete 1940 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
