Rummer :

For the Rummer Pub in Enfield, following my gggg. grandfather Thomas Boswell as publican was his daughter Sarah Ridenton and her husband James Ridenton (leasehold passed through Thomas Boswell's will). Their tenure was short as James died 1828 (a year after Thomas Boswell), and Sarah died in 1831. *

The pub at some point passed to Sarah's cousin Joseph Jelly.  *

The Rummer, in Enfield was later renamed the Railway Inn and shows Charles Barber as listed by 1861. *

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!
