May 1872/James Terry/ Incoming Licensee /../../The Era ****

It was in 1874 his first wife Emma Maria Terry died. He is then shown on the electoral list as living at 45 Gowers Walk, Whitechapel between 1876 to 1878. Then in 1878 he married a Barmaid, who was previously working at the Duke of York, Limehouse (well well ! ).......my Great Grandmother, Amelia Pass. *+

Believe it or not I have also found James Terry on the Electoral list for 1878 and also 1879 at the King of Prussia 5-6 Garth Street, Shadwell; that was later owned by William Pass, Amelia’s Brother. By 1879, James Terry is a publican at City Arms, 150 City Road; and the Two Beehives, 89 Devas street, Bromley by the 1881 census.  *+
