These premises have been known by different names during their history:FROMTONAME
15631650SAINT GEORGE
16501781GEORGE
18281855GEORGE AND DRAGON
This name originally referred to St. George, the patron saint of England (though he is often coupled with the dragon). Since 1714, George has been a kingly name in England, six different kings having borne it. In 1829 Wheatleys Charity records that William Beaumont was the tenant at will of a messuage, yard and premises in Far Gosford Street now the George and Dragon public house. In 1853 the pub was for sale. It had closed by 1865 as, in a list of estates belonging to Bablake School at that date, there is a tenement in Far Gosford Street formerly called the George and Dragon public house. There is a possibility that at some time it was called the St George Inn. Previously the property was known as the Saint George or simply the George. Photo
