London historical street directory and pub history

This is now an updated and complete, historical London street directory for 1832 and 1842 and more

White Horse, 13 Sandys Row, Spitalfields

Spitalfields index

The address is listed as 8 Sandys Row in 1851 and earlier. It should not be confused with the Grapes, also listed as 13 Sandys Row, as this was a separate establishment on the other side of the road (in Bishopsgate). * The address in the 1853 and 1873 license transfer is at White Horse, Petticoat lane; and in the 1879 license transfers lists as at Middlesex Street.

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.

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 1840 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
