King William IV (King William the Fourth)

Status: Closed and demolished
Address: 28 Wellington Street, SE8 (streetmap) (osm) (gmap) (bingmap) (streetview)
Former name(s): Dolphin
Former address: 49 Wellington Street (pre-1891)
49 Flagon Row (1848)
Dates open: [1826]-[1896]
Notes: This street no longer exists (except as McMillan Street, to the east). Demolished for extension of Creek Road to Evelyn Street. In Sun Fire Insurance records, the same victualler is listed in 1831 at the "Dolphin" as in 1832 at the "King William IV" so I believe this may be the same pub, and it must have been renamed around this time (the king's coronation was in 1831).
