I have the following information regarding William Greenhill at the Duke of Gloucester, from Holdens Trienniel in 1805 & 1808. He is at the Mulberry Tree, Stepney Green from Holdens Triennial of 1811. ***

Land Tax Records from 1808 show him at Gloucester Court, under a further heading “In the Court”. By 1810 the Land Tax Records show him on Stepney Green East, but listed towards the end of that address so most likely towards the end of the street, the name of the proprietor of the property is Capt Dryden with William listed as Occupier. Land Tax Records of 1811 & 1812 show the same information. In 1814 the proprietor is list as B Scutt with William having House & Garden, 1815 shows the same, as does 1817. 1819 & 1820 records show William with the House & Garden but with 2 cottages & garden added. Land Tax Records from 1824 show the same however as he had died in March 1823 I believe it may have been his son William Mills Greenhill that this record was referring to or did Sarah his widow carry on the business herself. ***

Baptism places of his children also follow the moves of the William from The Duke of Gloucester to Mulberry Tree, his earlier children were baptised in various places also and I wonder if William was moving with his work from licensed establishment to licensed establishment. ***

Sarah was referred to in later records as Licensed Victualler and Licensed Victualler’s widow however I am yet to find any evidence where she was Licensed under her own name. William Stevens and family are listed at the Mulberry Tree in the 1841 census. Nearby at 4 Mulberry Gardens is Sarah Greenhill and she has a grandchild with her on Census night. I am thinking that this address may be one of the two cottages that was showing in the land tax records of 1819 & 1820. ***
