St Pancras index

It's now called the Torriano (the name was pinched from the Torriano Arms at 140 Leighton Road NW5, now flats, which you already have and is just 30 yards away). This confirmed at CAMRA's NW5 section which outlines the history of the two Torrianos. ***

James Brierley, who lived at, and was the proprietor of, ‘The Rose & Crown’ at 71 Torriano Avenue from about 1910 until his death there on the 11th March 1917; and was my mother’s mother’s first husband. (His wife (my g-grandmother), Lydia Annie Brierley (nee Jenkins) was still at that address in the electoral register of 1918.)  *

Prior to that, James Brierley (and his first wife, Matilda) are shown in the earlier 1901 census as being at 22 Venice Street, Bethnal Green - the Bee Hive. *
