St Bart pub history index
This area of London starts to get confusing prior to about 1840, or maybe about 1835. In this year there is a White Hart listed at 28 Farringdon street, and a Crown & Anchor listed next door, this is according to the Robsons 1835 street directory.
About 1828, Farringdon street is listed as Fleet market; unfortunately the yearly street directories don't appear to list all traders at the addresses; and often for these early years, the public houses are not deemed important enough to be specified. Unless you try the early Holden directory, which do list these, although there are only a couple of these directories available.
