The GLOBE TAVERN is mentioned in 1636, and in 1649 was
leased to Henry Hothersall for forty-one years“ at the yearly rent of £75 and
ten gallons of Canary sack," and £400 fine. He laid out £1,000 in rebuilding,
and, after the Great Fire, a new lease was granted for sixty-one years at £40
per annum, with a piece of ground in the rear" for the more commodious landing
of his wines from Shoee Lane into his backyard.” The “ Globe” gained some
celebrity in the last century under the proprietorship of Deputy Thorpe and his
predecessors. Here met at one table Woodfall the reporter; Macklin, the comedian
; Kelly ; Archibald Hamilton, the printer; Thomas Cornan, the bookseller, who
won the action against the Stationer's Company for almanack printing; Akerman,
keeper of Newgate; Dunstall, another comedian, famous for his "Love in a
Village;" Tom King, &c. Dr. Glover was the life of the Club, though very poor
and very sensitive. No. 131, Fleet Street, marks the tavern site.
26th October 1663 : " and so back to Cornhill to Moxon’s, but it being dark
we staid not to see any, then to coach again, and presently spying Sir W.
Batten; I ‘light and took him in and to the Globe in Fleete Streete, by
appointment, where by and by he and I with our solicitor to Sir F. Turner
about Field’s business, and back to the Globe, and thither I sent for Dr.
Williams .." again in Pepys diary.
24th March 1665 : "Up betimes, and by agreement to the Globe taverne in
Fleet Street to Mr. Clerke, my sollicitor," states Pepys in his diary.
The Globe Tavern is burnt down in the Fire of London in 1666, as is all of
Fleet street. The people who would have owned properties, particular the
larger properties were taxed by the number of hearths (fire places), and a
list in 1666 is here for
