Red Lion, 9 Princes Street, St Margaret, Westminster SW1

Westminster St Margaret index

This pub stood on the western side of Princes Street, between Lewisham Street and Parker Street. Until the 1850s, its address was 21 Princes Street, but re-numbering then changed it to No. 9. A newspaper ad of 1803 refers to a carriage for sale in the Red Lion Yard, Princes Street, but Horwood’s map of 1795 does not show a yard attached to No 21, though there is an un-named yard opposite. The earliest reference to the pub itself is as an address for a letter in 1822. There is a pub today (2012) on the same site (address now 9 Storeys Gate), called the Westminster Arms, but I cannot find proof of any continuity between the Red Lion and this modern pub.

[I have a problem with the 1841 Census. It does not number dwellings in Princes Street, nor name pubs, but one can find George Burrell, Publican (whom we know to have been at No 17, the Duke of Ormond), and Thomas Boatwright, Publican (whom we know to have been at No 24, the Prince’s Head). There are exactly 6 dwellings between the houses of these gentlemen, suggesting the entries are in consecutive numerical order. But the dwelling which should be No 21 does not have a publican present, and nor do any of the other intervening houses. Even more problematic, Mr Charles Franklin, who could be the man recorded in the Trades Directory as being the licensee of the Red Lion in 1841, is living at what was probably No 18, and working as a Tailor!] ***
