London historical street directory and pub history

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

Queen's Head, 16 Broadway, Barking

Barking pub history index

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.

This pub was also known in the 19th century as the Barking Distillery. It was rebuilt in 1873 after the earlier pub had been destroyed by fire. It appears to have been demolished in the 1930s. The address is listed as High Street until 1855, and as 5 Market Place in 1881. *+

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!
