Paddington pub history index
This pub dates from 1704 and was rebuilt in 1890 at the same address. The 1847 license transfer refers to the Black Lion, Craven Hill, Paddington. The address becomes 123 Bayswater Road between 1938 and 1944, the earlier address is at 22 Bayswater Terrace, Bayswater Road before complete renumbering. In 2014 it was sold to developers for £27 million! *** The early directory in 1833 refers to Elkins row, Bayswater. Apparently, John Elkins was an early builder on this land circa 1790, and Elkins row existed near to the Black Lion.

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!
