My relative Samuel Mayhew was Publican of the Queens Head, 73 Great Queen Street for a few years in the early 1830s. He was born in Beccles, Suffolk circa 1806, then came south and managed several London pubs including the Three Lords, Minories, and the Bricklayers Arms, Whitecross Street. He went bust in November 1840. *

The exact dates of his tenure of the Queen’s Head is AT LEAST September 1831 until June 1833. His oldest daughter Ellen was Christened at St Giles on 28 Sept 1831, and the family address was The Queen’s Head. Similarly when his oldest son Samuel Edward was Christened in St Giles on 16 June 1833, the address was 73 Great Queen Street, also the address of the pub. *

When his daughter Mary Ann was Christened on 15 November 1835, the address was 27 Minories, the address of the ‘Three Lords’. *
