St George Martyr pub history index
The pub was present by 1710 and remains open (2007). The address varies in earlier census, including 1 Queens Square in 1891 and 1911, and 15 Cosmo Place in 1899 ** The modern address in 2018 is at 1 Queen square, Bloomsbury, London WC1N 3AR and is still open for business. As it was a beer house, most trade directories only list this in the beer retailers section once we have found the correct address to look for which is generally at 15 Cosmo place. The 1911 census suggests there are three families at this property, and I am guessing it is the occupants over different floors.

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!
