Thanks fograin for yourcomments on this one:
Henry Street does not appear on the on the 1868 Mapco map but is on the 1874 map.
The London Armoury Co had gone into liquidationin after the end American Civil War 1866 and if Henry Street is not shown as being on the map for 1868 , I think fogbrain is right that the company was never in Henry Street, the information and pictures I have gathered is only what I have found on the internet.
I somehow feel that the link to where the company was is what I have read about them working out of old railway sheds in the Bricklayers Arms.
Or was it their office was at 10 Henry Street not the works?

A product of the London Armoury Company of Bermondsey was the Kerr Revolver it was said to have been better made and finished than any similiar product made in either the North or The South

The Henry Street that was near the Bricklayer's Arms was renamed Pardoner Street.

Henry Street - Pardoner Street

Thanks fograin for guiding me in this direction it may be you have cracked it.

The 1857 shows Henry Street as does the 1861 map but with an addition a factory to the north end. This is again shown on the 1864 map.
.
Copy of the 1872 map showing clearly that the factory was in fact an Enginering Works, could this have been the London Armoury Works?

We have now completed a full circle and returned to the Tabard Gardens area.!

Thanks, Fosney. But I'm dubious that this is it. The roadway of Henry Street ends at the last house on the left. Beyond that it is pavement that goes beside the house to link up with Etham Street and Castle (later Camelot) Street. And as well as the parish boundary following the line of the old stream or ditch, the map indicates a wall, or at least a fence, right the way along until Castle Street which did give access to various premises. The works you refer to I would think were much more likely accessed from Castle Street or through that gap between buildings in Baalzephon (later part of Weston) Street. (I never mastered the baalzephon, but I do play the buffoon). And 10 Henry Street would have been a terraced cottage.

So, sorry, but I may have just thrown in a red herring, and we're actually going round in circles.


They had some great street names, didn't they? I love the contradictory "Amicable Row". I hope our ancestors appreciated the irony.

I had a dream - that kiwi asked if Loftie Street had previously been called Henry Street. It must have been a dream because I'm buggered if I can find the question now! Maybe he employed maori telepathy.
But he's not wrong: the bit that ran east-west was formerly Henry Street, the bit that survives was called Blackman's Alley, and the bit in-between was Ann Terrace. This is the Henry Street in St James's parish that lawrence123 referred to. I don't think this is the right Henry Street either - quite short and just a few houses, and in the middle of rope making country.

In 1972 Spratt's Patent (Holdings) Ltd changed its name to Spillers Foods Ltd and took over the management of all the trading operations of the Grocery Division of Spillers Ltd. Lakeland Food Industries Ltd, a Tyne Brand subsidiary, became responsible for the 'own label' business.
