Yorkshire Grey



The Yorkshire Grey was situated at 34 Blackheath Road. This pub has now been demolished.

On the 29th June 1829, my 3x great grandfather, Richard Lambourn, murdered his estranged wife with a knife in the kitchen of the 'Yorkshire Grey', having waited outside for her to open up in the early morning! He then tried to kill himself using the same knife, but was restrained. An inquest was held on the premises later the same day. Richard was convicted of murder in his absence, but later died in Guy's Hospital a few days later of pre-existing abdominal problems.
