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.
Also see the History of Plaistow
[Later Ye Olde Green Gate, 523 Barking Road]. It closed in early 2012, and is now a Tesco. *+
The Greengate was recorded from at least 1776 and held on to its original appearance longer than any pub in Plaistow - here it is in circa 1926. Thanks to Lal & Amy

My great-grandfather and grandfather owned the pub in the 1870's-1880's. I found out the other day that the bar maid Lily Buliver went onto marry my great-grandfather when Mary Anne - his wife - died, wonder how long that had been going on! ***

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!
