In the 1887 Kelly's directory the licensee is recorded as George Gray. I have been trying to ascertain whether this is the George Gray I am researching, but obviously he was only there for a short stint, between Young and Macaire, and I've not been able to come up with any additional evidence in newspapers etc.  *+

My George Gray was running a beer shop at 42 Osborne Road, Hackney Wick in August 1885, where his daughter was born. He had previously [1881] had a grocer's shop in Grange Road, Camden, and by 1887 had moved to Mortlake, Surrey. If you were to come across any more information about when Young ended his tenancy, or about the Lord Palmerston's George Gray, I would be very interested. *+
