The following entries are in this format:
Year/Publican or other Resident/Relationship to Head and or Occupation/Age/Where Born/Source.
1890/Went George Larcombe - 27 November. Administration of the Personal
Estate of George Larcombe Went late of the "Lorne Arms" Queens road
Walthamstow in the County of Essex Licensed Victualler who died 12 November
1890 at the "Lorne Arms" was granted at the Principal Registry to Elizabeth
Ann Went of the "Lorne Arms" Widow the Relict. ***
George Lurcombe Went, born in 1856, Dartmoor Devon was a Licensed Victualler and appears to have died at the Lorne Arms Walthamstow in Nov 1890, previously in the 1881 census has George and his wife running the Metropolitan Tavern in Uxbridge. So sometime between 1881 & 1890 he must have taken over the running of the Lorne Arms.
After his death George's wife Elizabeth was still living at 64 Queens Road with a new husband Edwin Garner but the building doesn't appear to have been a Pub at this point. By 1901 they had moved to Ilford. ***

My parents John and Bernadette Burke were the publicans of The Lorne Arms in the late 60s to 1969. They were publicans for Charringtons for over 20 years.
In 1969 they opened a new pub, The Greyhound on Chingford Hall Estate which was recently demolished. Following the Greyhound they went to The Haw Bush in Barley Lane, Chadwell Heath from 1971 to 1981, this pub has now been made into flats. *

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!
