As the GREEN MAN IN BOOTS 1836.

Located on the South West corner of Row 44, Howard Street to Market Place.

On Thursday 6th April 1843 William Moore was charged that he had `killed and slain' a soldier by the name of William Burman.
It was heard that Burman had arrived at the Green Man & Boot in the company of a pensioner named William Dyball, at one o'clock on the morning of Sunday 4th December 1842. The pair had previously visited several other houses.
Since it was after midnight, they were refused service of beer,  Burman asked for gin which was provided, but rather than charge the usual 2d, landlord Moore charged 6d, which was paid. The pair were then told to drink their gin and leave but Burman refused. In the ensuing attempt by Moore to eject Burman, the latter was said to have fallen down an hit his head. Dyball stated that Burman had been thrown to the floor and his head beat on the floorboards three or four times. Another witness said that both Moore and Burman had fallen by accident and the latter had hit his head on the bar counter as he fell.
A large number of witnesses all testified that Mr. Moore was the most humane, civil, obliging, convivial and good-natured person.
The Jury however found him guilty and the Judge sentenced him to one month's imprisonment and hard labour.

Conveyed 23rd August 1845 by Samuel Paget & others to George Morse, Timothy Steward, Peter Finch and Henry Staniforth Patteson.

Became the CITY OF LONDON TAVERN by 1850.

Later the TALBOT.
