William 4th in 1851 census; King William IV in 1843 and just named the King William in 1854. This is earlier the Black Horse, certainly in 1832.
King William was King from June 26th 1830 until his death in 1837; I guess this was why this was previously the Black Horse!
Comparing the 1832 and 1842 street directories answers some questions, and also raises more questions?
