26 August 1783, Thomas Hemingway, aged 27 days, is baptised at Christ Church, Spitalfields, son of Daniel Hemingway, a butcher, North street, and Ann Hemingway.

On 10 January 1827, aged 43, he is a member of the Mount Moriah Lodge of Freemasons until at least 1829, and listed as an inn keeper of Mile End road.
Thomas Hemingway was the licensed victualler of the Kings Arms, he was there in 1841 but retired in 1851. I assume it was sold or leased but that is a guess.  ***+

I have Thomas Hemingways' death record and burial details - died Worthing 1856, aged 72, and buried in the London & Tower Hamlets Cemetery in February 1856; in the family grave purchased, when his son William died.
His son, Thomas II, must have taken over when the lease on the Bank Friendship (1841 for 21 years) expired in 1862.
He died in 1869 and his sister Mary Ann took over in 1869.
The Kate Hemingway (1869 Proceeds of the Old Bailey) was the daughter of Thomas II and Mary Jane (nee Dredge).
I am not sure who the Mrs Hemingway 1870 is it could be Thomasí I wife Elizabeth who died in 1873 or Mary Jane wife of Thomas II, both were widows at that time.
Mrs M. J. Hemingway is Mary Jane the wife of Thomas II She was there until 1882 according to your records.
I have found her death which occurring to the probate records on "3rd July 1881 at the Bank of Friendship, Public House, Hartford Street, Mile End RoadĒ.
