The 1891 & 1901 censuses also lists the pub at 2 Austin St.
"After twenty years I have tracked down my grandfathers birth place. He was born in the Boars Head at Ipswich on the 27 Dec 1875. Needless to say family are very impressed he was born in pub. Interestingly when he grew up he worked at the same distillery that his father worked for on the river at Hammersmith."
