Malpas Arms, 7 Charles Street, St George Hanover Square

St George Hanover Square pub history index

A listing of historical London public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in St George Hanover Square; and includes such areas of London as Knightsbridge, Mayfair and Pimlico.

The following entries are in this format:

Year/Publican or other Resident/Relationship to Head and or Occupation/Age/Where Born/Source.

1797/Isaac Baker/victualler/../../Sun Fire Office records held at the London Metropolitan Archives *+

1800/Henry Bailey/victualler/../../Sun Fire Office records held at the London Metropolitan Archives *+

1835/Robert Chisholm/victualler and spirit dealer/../../Sun Fire Office records held at the London Metropolitan Archives *+

In October 1835, one of my great-great-great grandfathers, Robert Chisholm, held the licence (reference - an insurance record refers to him then). I think that he died in 1839, as although the Public House & Publican Directory for 1839 states that he was the licensee then, the same Public House & Publican Directory for 1841 shows it has 'gone' to Mrs Maria Chisholm (his widow). Maria re-married - actually in 1840 - to William Tayler, who is listed in 1851 (although he had also died by then, and the licence transferred to Alfred Naish.  *
