An ancestor of mine, John Edward Rose, was born 1864, at St Giles. His birth certificate lists his parents residence as 172 Drury Lane, St. Giles, also lists his fathers occ. as publican, so they may have operated this pub during that period. Their names were William Rose and Mary Ann Rose (nee Mudd) ***
