    Gun & Tent, 10 Fort Street, Spitalfields

    At 9 Fort Street in 1839 & 1856

    Spitalfields index

    A listing of historical public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in Spitalfield - now in London. The Spitalfield, 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.

    In reference to the "Gun & Tent" at Artillery Ground, my gggggrandmother had this Inn and it is mentioned in her Will of 1828 - she left this to her eldest son Henry Carey Drury. In her Will the address is: "Gun and Tent of the Old Artillery Ground in the Liberty of the Old Artillery Ground in the County of Middlesex".

    I am assuming that this is the same one that is listed as now as being at 10 Fort Street, Spitalfields?

    I think she [Charlotte] had had this pub for some time, probably from her first marriage to Thomas Drury in 1792 - when he is listed as a Victualler; her second husband likewise, my gggggrandfather Abraham Luya; and husband number three also, i.e. Thomas Wood. My Charlotte outlived them all. *
