Dolphin, 126 Hythe Hill, Colchester

Colchester pub history index

Dolphin, Hythe Street/Hythe Hill, Colchester 1887

Hythe Hill and the Dolphin in 1887

Kindly provided by Jess Jephcott

 The earliest mention found is from Michaelmas 1757, when William Summersum informed Gentlemen, Farmers and others' that he had removed from 'the Dolphin in the Hyth parish to the White Swan in the same parish.' It first appears in the alehouse recognisances of 1764 and then through to 1819, when the trail continues through trade directories.  ***

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!
