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?

My great great grandfather James Shakespeare Killingback was born here in 1852, his father also James is recorded on his birth certificate as "publican". I have no idea how long the family were associated with the pub but James S. K. lived at various addresses close by until his death in 1917. **

The person you list as the Publican from 1934, ARTHUR SAMUEL LAZARUS, was my Grandfather and my Mother was actually born in the living accommodation above the pub. His brother was Albert Langdon; and no doubt his name was on the licence at times. My Grandfather took over the pub from his Father, Jacob Lazarus, who died in 1929; and the following is an update on the years that they were landlords:- ***

From approx 1915 until 1925 or 1926, JACOB LAZARUS was the publican.
From 1925 or 1926 until 1954 ARTHUR SAMUEL LAZARUS was the publican.

During the First World War, one of our own bomb shells went through the roof of The Shakespeare! ***
