 A bit of pre-pub history :- My guess is that Thomas Amos built the pub. Incidentally, in February, 1838; a Thomas Amos marries an Elizabeth Plummer. He is a builder, she is daughter of Robert Plummer, licensed victualler. Both are listed of address as Kingsland road. He is listed as son of a gentleman, and allegedly a widow. They are still living in Kingsland road in the 1841 census. By 1851, their address is 18 Tyssen terrace, where as you can see he is still listed as builder !

James Abbott (1834-1899) was my great grandfather and he leased The Tavern from his uncle in June 1861. In fact he and his wife Matilda lived there, and my grandfather was born there in September 1861, followed by three sisters and four brothers until 1874.  In 1874 The Tavern was leased on to Robert Mann for a term of 73 years. Prior to this, James Robert, a licensed victualler himself, had lived at 31 Coleman street in the City, i.e. the Fountain & Star .
