My great grandfather, William Gent, ran the Three Mariners Public House, 34 Ropemakers Fields, Limehouse, from 1893-1900. William's father, Filby Gent, was listed in the 1845, 1846 & 1848 directories as a beer retailer, living at 11 St. Annes Place, Limehouse (Star of the East). The 1851 Census gives him as a beer seller living at 26 St. Anne's Place, Limehouse. I see on your site that Filby Gent also ran the Bricklayers Arms, 34 Settles Street, Mile End in 1823; and the Old Bailey online places him at 10 Duke Street, St Georges East in 1830. ***

William's daughter, Violet Gent (my grandmother), was living with her sister and brother-in-law, Frederic Payne, at the Ship beer house, 291 West Ferry Road, Millwall, in the 1901 Census. William Gent worked on the construction of Tower Bridge and was injured in a fall from it. That's when he took on the Mariners pub.  ***
