Index to Inns in John Rocque’s Plan of London 1747

The index to Rocque’s Plan of London 1747 includes about 157 Inns dotted around central London. I list them here, and attempt to find each and everyone listed on my pubwiki site.

Index to Rocque’s Plan of London 1747

Here are the maps :

In simplicity 1 : top, 2 : middle and 3 : bottom, & lettering from left to right.

Then in each square is top : 123, middle: 456, bottom : 789

I am not sure whereabouts some of these are, so I will do some searching on the map and post a little picture, it it looks like it will help.

I am using the online map at https://www.locatinglondon.org/ and also the Layers of London maps.
