My Great Great grandfather John Bennett Booker was licensed Victualler, but I am still trying to find out the duration he was at the Ship – my great uncle still recalls this grandmother (John’s wife) telling him stories about Jack the Ripper! John Bennett Booker is at the One Tun, Saffron Hill by 1899, whilst his father is at the Pauls Head, 1 Crispin Street, Spitalfields *
