Craven Arms, 1 - 3 Craven passage WC2

This pub was listed as the Ship & Shovel in 1874 and earlier; but by 1878 has become the Craven Arms, aka Craven Tavern in 1884. By the 1980s the name had reverted to the Ship & Shovel and this was amended to the Ship & Shovell following restoration in around 1997. The address has been given as both 1 Craven Passage and 3 Craven Court at various times. **

It is still open for business in 2019 as the Ship & Shovell.

Emily Jarvis (nee Quinton) and her sisters were my great great aunts! I think James Jarvis died in 1884 not clear how. In 1871, he and Emily, his wife to be, were working and living at Whitehall Garden National Club, Westminster he as a valet, and she as a housemaid (4th housemaid, indeed). Their rise seemed to be as fast as their fall. I think Emily died in the 1890s. ***
