News: The modern name of Kent is derived from the Brythonic word kantos meaning "rim" or "border", or possibly from a homonymous word kanto "horn, hook"

The Pub History site lists the Globe and Laurel, 105 Britton Street as 7 Wellington Place in the 1851 census.

There is also a thread on KHF where this location is discussed, staring at reply #39:

The 1851 P.O. Directory lists a number of people at 'Wellington Place, New Brompton' - George Chalken, beer retailer; John Adams, haberdasher; William Croneen, beer retailer; George Houghton, butcher; George Nash, grocer.

William Croneen appears in the 1855 P.O. Directory as landlord of the Viscount Hardinge, Park Place. The pub was located on the corner of the High Street and Marlborough Road (then known as Park Place.)  George Houghton is listed as a butcher at 4 High Street. Sadly the others are not listed in 1855. Neither Park Place or High Street appear for New Brompton in the 1851 directory.

To me this suggests that Wellington Place was either Park Place or the High Street (or possibly both) in 1851. I've not come across any other references to it so far.

Does anyone have any more information on Wellington Place?
