Greenhithe: Sir John Franklin public house
Greenhithe: Sir John Franklin public house
There has been a licensed premise on this site since 1661 when the King's Head was established. In 1742 it became the White Hart and was rebuilt in 1840. In 1845 Sir John Franklin stayed here just before he set sail on his ill-fated journey to discover the North-West Passage, a fact commemorated in the recent re-naming of the pub.

A glance at the 1881 Census shows the following occupants:

Emma VITON, Head of the household, Unmarried, Age 62, Born Barking, Essex, Occupation: Hotel Proprietor
Mary A FARMER, Unmarried, Age 20, Born Headcorn, Kent, Occupation: Domestic Servant
James OLIVIE, Unmarried, Age 20, Born Bethnal Green, Middlesex, Occupation: Waiter

plus two guests whose ages are given but not their names!
