Search the historical London street directory and pub history site by surname, street or pub name; you will find many obscure early street addresses in London through the Victorian pub history of London and early parish and licensing records on this site. Most records are before 1944 plus some modern detail, and lots of pictures.
The South side of Rochester Row would match with New Rochester Row in 1851, when no licensed premises or beer retailers are listed. In 1856, there were two beer retailers at 45 Rochester Row and also at 28 Rochester Row. That at number 45 is closest to the church, and could be the Cabin, previously known as John Bulls Cabin.
