London historical street directory and pub history

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

Queens Larder, 1 Little Ormond Street, St George Martyr, London

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.

A listing of historical London public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in  St George Martyr parish, London. The St George Martyr, London Public House Trade Directory 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 1940 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
