Camberwell pubs history index
The Heber Arms, now converted into flats - It would appear that it was built 1867/68 by William Henry Hammer, a New Cross based builder who made two unsuccessful licensing applications in 1868 & 1869. It was then presumably run as a beer house until Walter Wright's successful application in 1878 - so far, I have not found any census info for 1871. **
A listing of historical London public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in Camberwell, Surrey, London. The Camberwell, Surrey , London listing uses information from census, Trade Directories and History to add licensees, bar staff, Lodgers and Visitors. This area includes Camberwell, Dulwich and Peckham.
The following entries are in this format:
Year/Publican or other Resident/Relationship to Head and or Occupation/Age/Where Born/Source.
1868 - South London Chronicle 4/04/1868: Newington Licensing Meeting:
Licence refused – Heber Arms, Heber Street, Landcroft Road, East Dulwich **
1869 - Morning Advertiser 1/04/1869: Licences – William Henry Hammer, Heber Arms, Heber Street, Lancroft Road, East Dulwich, opposed by the landlord of the Plough. Licence refused. **
1878 - South London Press 16 March 1878: Walter Wright applied for a victualler’s licence for the Heber Arms, Heber Road, East Dulwich. Applicant had paid £1580 for the freehold and fittings, and Mr Lilley, who appeared in support, contended that this fact certified to the adaptability of the premises for the business which the applicant sought to obtain by this licence. The house had had a licence seven years ago, which had been held for a number of years: but two years since, owing to a dispute, and some litigations which occurred at the time, it had fallen through. Under these circumstances he hoped the bench would see fit to grant the applicant’s request. There was no opposition. **

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!
