    Limehouse index

    At 1 Fore Street in 1839; At 1 Three Colt Street in 1856 on the corner of Fore Street; and the Kings Head, 1 Fore Street in 1869. The 1863 and 1867 license transfers refer to this as the Kings Head, Limehouse corner, which is correct checking the 1861 census where it is referred to as the Old Kings Head. Aka the Spirit Stores in 1871 & aka Old Kings Head in 1891 and 1911; It is long-closed and now in residential use. ** The 1934 and 1938 directories lists the address as a banana merchant, the latter being Bert Andrew Lambert as per the 1930s photographs.
