public house history

London, Essex, Kent, Hertfordshire, Suffolk & Sussex Pubs, Inns, Taverns & Beer Houses History & Trade Directory.:

"These are the entry pages to the history of London, Essex, Kent, Hertfordshire & Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Sussex & Dorset Historical Public Houses site, which complement many other excellent FREE genealogy sites.. (or use the navigation bars and the excellent search engines).

London Public Houses information starts with the 1881 census,
Trade Directory entries from the Post Office , Kelly and Pigots Directories, Petty Session Victuallers records etc.

The information is mostly historical, being up to two hundred years previous. But, you will also find many modern and classical images of these public houses & Beer Houses; and the occasional Telephone number, or postal code.

There are now over 14,000 London, Essex, Suffolk, Sussex, Hertfordshire & Kent Pubs - i.e. public houses, taverns, Pubs in London and many beer houses & retailers (the early off licences).
These are listed by church parish as they would have existed before 1900, and many of these are no longer in existence due to road improvement schemes and the policy to build on 'brown fill' sites, often including old pubs and garages, which are being annihilated in vast quantities, to improve housing opportunuties."
