The Woodman in George Street, St Alphage parish of Greenwich
John Harradence was definitely there by April 1848 when a bar man gave him as the publican at this pub as a reference. (Article on BNA in 7th April 1848 Morning Advertiser). He gave up the license in 1854 according to licence transfers. *

Plough Tavern :
You have him listed as Hawadence - which is the incorrect transcription of the 1861 census. John Harradence and his wife Sarah Ann are at the Plough Tavern in Poplar in the 1861 census. He was born in Litlington Cambridgeshire, only his wife was born in Wanstead Essex - there's an original transcription error by the census taker. They had probably left the Plough by 1864 when he applied to the Licensed Victualler's association for an Almshouse and gave a different address in Poplar of 2a newby Place Poplar. *
