St Gregory by St St Pauls pub history index
The Tobits Dog is still listed in 1836, but appears to be "pulled down to enlarge the premises of one of the great linen drapers", i.e. the establishment next door by 1838. The 1842 street directory shows no mention, although the 1832 directory does. Earlier mentions in 1810 note it as the Tobits Dog coach office, and it is also mentioned in 1802 in coaching terms. In 1833 there is a will of an John Nicol of Bodicote leaving this messuage to his illegitimate son, Henry Nicol. This is probably the ownership of the building rather than the licensing of the premises.
Lockies topegraphy of London in 1810 describes it as "Tobits Dog coach office, St Pauls Church yard : a door or two on the R. from Ludgate street".

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!
