Usually listed at Ye Plough Hotel, at Wandsworth Road in 1851 census. Ye Old Plough Inn, on St. John's Hill, which was built a.d. 1701, and was pulled down in 1874, the present " Plough " being erected upon the site. In front of the old inn grew an oak tree, beneath its shade travellers used to sit and enjoy their refreshments. There is some grounds for the belief that the notorious Dick Turpin once stayed at this house for some time, when he was nightly visiting the Garrett Lane district, the lane was then a lonely Surrey high road, leading to Tooting and Merton, where many of the gentry resided whom Turpin used to intercept on their way home, and demand his toll. Tradition says that he was often in hiding at the " Plough," when he was hard pressed by the men of law (1913). *

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!
