Kings Head, 42 Queen Street, St Martin Vintry, Cheapside, London EC4
The following entries are in this format:
Year/Publican or other Resident/Relationship to Head and or Occupation/Age/Where Born/Source.
The publican in 1817 was one John Hyde, and wife Martha, who died aged 39,
of liver disease. Their son, also John, born in 1817 became a soldier, and
was in the Crimea. What became of John senior, I know not, but John junior
ended as a Chelsea pensioner, and finally found himself a wife, in his
twilight years! Ah!
John senior was born in Eton, in the 1790s, and what took him to London, nor led him to become a publican, I have no idea. His address is given as 40 Queen's Street on his son's baptismal details, I can now feel assured that this was indeed the pub where he worked. ***

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!
