London historical street directory and pub history

Most of the properties on my site are now probably listed on rightmove as residential property rather than pubs, perhaps they would like to sponsor this site?

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. ***
