    Search the historical London street directory, and London pub history site including early street addresses in London through the Victorian pub history of London.

    London historical street directory and pub history

    Aldgate - East Ham , Forest Gate - Spitalfields , St Alban - St Margarets, St Martin - St Thomas , Stoke Newington - Whitefriars

    London is the BEST place to research, and I love it. I have a major site listing pub history according to church records. I now want to take this forward to create an in depth study of London and its streets using pubs and churches as a significant pointer to their position in modern London; and also list many of the street name changes as they happened.

    This site has always avoided modern post codes to clarify an address, but rather identify the church parish that a pub existed - you have no idea how difficult this is. Here is a brief description (Chambers Guide) in 1862, before Post Codes appear to have been invented.

    The general theme is / was to use an parish area to place a particular public house, beer retailer of hotel etc. This is entirely in contradiction to the modern, and apparently simple, post code system. In addition to these problems are the fact that some parishes have been entirely annihalated through time

  • plus the fact that many areas now known as London were in fact in many of the local counties, e.g. Essex, Surrey, Kent etc.

    So, with these restrictions in place (imposed by myself), I decided to add a number of 1911 census summaries, and a list of the London directories that I am referring to in research. If you prefer to follow the simple system of post codes, refer to Ewan's brilliant pubology UK site (see individual indexes further down for pubs by postcode).

    Here are a number of London directories of publicans, beer houses, hotel, coffee houses etc.
