St Pancras index

Named in 1871 census, at corner of Ferdinand Place in 1882 Directory and at 1 Ferdinand Street before 1891. (To be precise it is at 1a Ferdinand Street, as the Monarch is at 1 Ferdinand Street in 1856).  At the time of conversion to residential use around 2006, this pub was known as the Crowndale with the address of 10 Ferdinand Street, the same name as back in 1966. ***

My great x3 grandfather James Holcomb (sometimes spelt Holcombe) was the keeper here; some time after the 1861 census which has him elsewhere and in railway service. However, he died on 1867, and the death certificate records his address as 1 Ferdinand Street Camden Town and gives his occupation as Beer House Keeper. *

He left a will, and the Probate Calendar for 1867 (volume 10, pages 25 - 26) has the following entry:
19 August. The Will of James Holcombe late of the "Jolly Butcher" Ferdinand Street Camden Town in the County of Middlesex deceased who died 4 July 1867 at the "Jolly Butcher" aforesaid was proved at the Principal Registry by the oath of Louisa Holcombe of the "Jolly Butcher" aforesaid Widow the Relict the sole Executrix. Effects under £450 *

Of further note is that the widow Louisa Holcombe was born Lucy Frost, the daughter of Ambrose and Sarah Frost of the Swan Inn, in Exning, Cambridgeshire. This is the only time I have seen her referred to as Louisa not Lucy. *
