Kings Head, 197 Shaftesbury Avenue, St George Bloomsbury WC2

St George Bloomsbury pub index

In 1871 known as the Jamaica Stores; At 25 Broad Street by 1891; and at 197 Shaftesbury Avenue by the 1891 census, although directories list it at 25 Broad street

I believe that I can now safely say that the Kings Head at 2 Monmouth street, Seven Dials (linking between 31 Broad street and 67 High street) is the same Kings Head as this. The last licensee in 1845, at 2 Monmouth street, is a Henry Moss, and that in 1846, at 25 Broad street, is a William Moss. The Mapco site has a rather good mapping of the area in 1851 which also confirms this.A listing of historical London public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in  St George Bloomsbury parish, London.

The following entries are in this format:
