The following entries are in this format:

Year/Publican or other Resident/Relationship to Head and or Occupation/Age/Where Born/Source.

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! ***

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!
