Chelsea Pub history index

This is not to be confused with the Coach & Horses at a similar address, as the numbering was very sporadic in early directories. The Three Crowns is earlier listed as at Royal Hospital row in 1843 and earlier. If it had survived longer it would have had an Pimlico road address. It is also named the Three Crowns in the 1841 census.

Globe 29 October 1836 :
Loss of Life on the River - On Thursday afternoon a very melancholy occurrence, attended with loss of life, took place on the river, opposite to the Red House, Battersea. In the fore part of the day, a party of respectable tradesmen, viz, Mr Neal, proprietor of the Three Crowns, Jews row, Chelsea; Mr Matthew Wood, blacksmith, of Lambeth; Mr Coombs, plumber, of Kings road, Chelsea; and Mr Mitchell, boat builder, at Lambeth, in a skiff, the property of Mr Neal, for the purpose of proceeding up the river on an excursion of pleasure. The weather was very boisterous, a strong north-west wind blowing at the time. When the skiff arrived nearly opposite the Red House, Battersea, a very severe squall came on, accompanied with heavy rain. By some mismanageent of the sail of the skiff she was thrown on her beam ends and filled; the consequence was the whole of the party were thrown into the water. The accident was seen from Cheyne walk, Chelsea, and several boats immediatley put off to the spot, and three of the party were picked up, but Mr Wood perished. His body was not found until yesterday morning, when it was conveyed to the Red House, to await the coroners inquest. The unfortunate man has left a widow and seven orphans to deplore his untimely end.
