London historical street directory and pub history

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

Carpenters Arms, 57 Elmira Street, Lewisham SE13

Lewisham index

I Believe this is the same Pub at 57 Loampit Vale, as at 57 Elmira Street by 1896, which is the detail being used

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

The following entries are in this format:

Year/Publican or other Resident/Relationship to Head and or Occupation/Age/Where Born/Source.

I thought you would be interested to know that in 1861 my 5 times grandmother, Mahala Chapman, was head of the household at the Carpenters Arms in Lewisham which was then at 5 Loampit Vale rather than at 57 Loam Pit Vale as shown in the 1881 census ***

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!
