These premises have been known by different names during their history:FROMTONAME
Photo Major General Sir Henry Havelock (1795 - 1857) was a British General who is particularly associated with India and his recapture of Cawnpore from rebels during the Indian Mutiny of 1857. He won a reputation as a great military leader in his advance northwards across Oudh (modern day Uttar Pradesh) defeating all rebel forces in his path, despite being greatly outnumbered. He captured Lucknow on 25 September 1875 but a second rebel force besieged the town again. A few days after this siege was lifted, Havelock died of dysentery. There is a statue to Havelock in Trafalgar Square. In 1858 the General Havelock was for sale, 'formerly called the Mulberry Tree'. This was only a year after Havelock's achievements in India. In 1861 there was an appllication to erect a slaughter house at the rear of the pub, but by 1874 the premises was a bookshop.
