My ancestor George Farrington b.1796, was landlord of 'The Black Dog' in 1842, he died there in that year. Reference : City of London Burial Records. ***
Family legend says George Farrington died falling down the cellar steps but when I got his death certificate, it said he died of consumption! My grandmother, Florence Farrington,(born 1852 - 1916) was daughter of George Henry Farrington (born 1828), stationer, who was the son of the George Farrington who was left the Black Dog by a relative. She married an Italian - surname Bayon in 1872. Family legend says George inherited the Black Dog from a relative but I have not been able to find out who owned the pub before him. Also there is a story that they were Huguenot weavers. Two of his brothers definitely were weavers on the 1841 census - Ebenezer and Edward. The family legend says George Henry Farrington (I think he was a printer) b.1828 -d. 1910 became a Quaker. *

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!
