Oxford Arms, 14 Westminster Bridge Road, Southwark St George Martyr

Southwark St George Martyr index

The Oxford Arms existed in Oxford Place, now part of Westminster Bridge Road, since at least 1809. Samuel Baker the landlord in 1846 was described as a publican, civil engineer, well borer etc. It was a Barclay Perkins, later a Courage's pub, and was renamed by 1994 the Flower of the Forest and was still there at the corner of Dodson Street (April 2009), mostly selling Guinness to the builders next door.
This, and the original Flower of the Forest, were about fifty to sixty yards apart on the edges of St. George's Circus, this is the one at Westminster Bridge Road next to the flats.  ***

Mary Ann Bill is the publican in 1839. She was my 3 x Great Grandmother. She must have taken over the pub when her husband Stephen William Bill died in 1835. I believe he was there a few years before. The reference to the pub and his death can be found on the London, England Deaths and Burials. Prior to this Stephen was a wine merchant in the Fleet Market.
