My GGG grandmother Ann W Ladbrook (nee Richardson) was the licensee of the Morgan Arms, 1 Morgan Street, Mile End in 1881; Thos (Thomas) Ladbrook listed as there in 1871, died in 1876. He is listed as the licensee as early as 1856, and in 1841 (and earlier), he was the licensee of The Old Fishing Boat, Bromley *
Their daughter Grace married James William McArthur and is listed here as the licensee in 1891.
Another daughter Maria Louisa Ladbrook married Alfred Glover who is listed in 1891 as the licensee of the Bell & Hare, 724 High Road, Tottenham. *
Yet another daughter Agnes married Isaac Mills Carter son of Isaac Mills Carter who also appears on your site - along with many other relatives with the same surname - his brother, William, at the Green Gate, 230 Bethnal Green Road; ; with Isaac at the Blade Bone, 185 Bethnal Green Road; (aka) the Three Jolly Weavers, 83 Church Street, Bethnal Green. Ann Carter (nee Richardson though I can find no connection with the above Ann Richardson) married Isaac Mills Carter); they were at the Noahs Ark, 216 Blackfriars Road Southwark in 1841, and after this at the Blade Bone. *

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!
