London historical street directory and pub history

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

Belinda Castle, 107 Halton Road, Islington N1

Islington index

The address is 1 Belinda Street in 1856 and earlier, prior to street renaming (it's also given as 1 Belinda Place in 1848 and 1841 directories).
In all the license transfer until 1864, and the 1856 directory, this is the Castle, Belinda Street. It changes by 1869 to the Belinda Castle, Halton Road. *  Note the current address is now 63-69 Canonbury Road, which is roughly where Halton Road would have crossed; this is now a gastropub known as the House and probably dates from the 1930s. ***

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

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!
