London historical street directory and pub history

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

Dyers Arms, 15 & 17 Cleveland Street, Mile End E1

Mile End Pubs history

A listing of historical public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in Bethnal Green, Middlesex - now in East London. The Bethnal Green, East London listing uses information from census, Trade Directories and History to add licensees, bar staff, Lodgers and Visitors.

The following entries are in this format:

Year/Publican or other Resident/Relationship to Head and or Occupation/Age/Where Born/Source.

8 Cleveland street :

In the 1856 directory, the beer retailer at 8 Cleveland street is a William Hayden. This marries nicely with the 1853 Old Bailey case, when a William Haydon is noted as keeping the Dyers Arms, Cleveland street by both his wife, Mary Ann Haydon and also his daughter, Sarah Ann Haydon. The street is renumbered between 1856 and 1869, and this address is close to Union terrace in 1856, and close to Union street in 1869. This detail also links to the 1897 Diamond jubilee license naming the Dyers Arms, in Cleveland street.

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!
