The George must have closed in the first decade of the 20th century, as the 1909 Rates book records it as "George Inn (late)".

Woodhouse Street was a street off Waterworks Street which no longer exists, and was called Victoria St. until sometime between 1874-81.

Replaced by modern housing.

Closure date recorded in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923.

As shown on an 1881 map of Ipswich.

Not to be confused with a George/Royal George that is listed at Tower Ramparts/High St. (St Matthew's parish).

Whilst my Great Grandmother Matilda Martin was at the Bull and Dog (1891) it seems her father Thomas Mannall was running the George Inn in Woodhouse Street?

(information from John Martin)

All census entries referring to Victoria St. are in St Clement's parish, the other Victoria St. is in St Matthew's parish.
