Royal Navy, 53 Salmon Lane, Limehouse E14

Limehouse index

I believe this is the same establishment that is listed as 4 Stebonheath Terrace in the 1861 census (and 3 Stebonheath Terrace, Salmon Lane in the 1856 directory), prior to street renumbering. *** In the 1901 census, the address shows as part of 45 Salmons Lane. This pub closed in 1999 and was converted to residential use. **

On the 31st May 1923 Henry Arthur Davis left “The Sultan”; and on the 14th August 1923, Henry Arthur Davis took over the “Royal Navy” (53, Salmons Lane) from Mr Frank Starling where they stayed until March 8th 1928 when the “Royal Navy” was transferred to Mr John William Whiteman.

14th August 1923/Henry Arthur Davis/Beer Retailer/../../../Tranfer Deeds *

I assume that they took over the “Lady Coborn” (740 Old Ford Road, Bow E3) in the same year but I do not have the transfer deed. I do however have them leaving the Lady Coburn on the 24th May 1934 and handing over to Mr Leonard Charles Tyler.
