Residents at this address.

The Rose & Lily 155 Drummond Road, Bermondsey was, in 1869 owned by my great grandfather John Harrison. I have the deeds - whether he actually ran the pub I don't know. Eliza Thomas - who he later married - might have been associated with the pub. She is described as a Licensed Victualler in the 1861 census, at the Holly Tree ***

The earliest document I have concerning the Rose and Lily states that on April 9th 1963 JH took a lease for the pub (155 Drummond Road on the east side and on the corner of Layard Road) paying 550. The document describes JH as a builder and in occupation of the property. The second and final document I have concerning the pub is dated 27October 1869 where JH is described as a licensed victualler (as above). In all I have four documents - the others concern other properties in Drummond Road including an oil shop and butchers shop. ***
