April 4 1844. A Little before midnight, a fire broke out at the Rose and Crown wine vaults, occupied by Mr Williams, No. 287 Oxford street, which was in a very short space of time wholly destroyed, and six persons perished in the flames, viz, Mrs Williams, aged 30, Eliza , her daughter, aged 4 1/2 years, William, her son, aged eight months, Sarah Hodgson and Charlotte, the cook and nursery maid, and Jacob Pickering, the pot-boy. The bar occupied nearly the whole of the ground floor of the building, and a number of large vats extended almost to the second floor, and were well stocked with spirits. ***
