      Regarding the Royal Hotel once owned and operated by Hans Willoughby:
      Royal Hotel, George Measom, 1857. ROYAL HOTEL. A small hand coloured vignette wood
      engraving. The 5* Grosvenor Hotel 56-58 Eastgate Street, Chester, Cheshire CH1 1LT is now
      on the site http://www.chestergrosvenor.co.uk/hotel-history "Since good Queen Bess ruled
      England, the hotel and its predecessors, The Golden Talbot and The Royal, have played a
      leading part in the social, cultural and political life of the city. From Tudor inn and political
      headquarters in bawdy Hanovarian days to a glittering mecca for the Regency and Victorian
      'county set' and on through the prosperous Edwardian era"
      Regarding St. Anne's Church in Limehouse England:
      adjacent to East India Dock Road. St Anne's is one of the three great Hawkesmoor churches in
      the East End. In the churchyard there are two particularly interesting memorials: The Pyramid
      and the War Memorial. www.geograph.org.uk/photo/788888 A 1711 Act of Parliament
      authorized the construction of twelve new churches in London. This is one of those churches
      and it was designed by Nicholas Hawksmoor, a pupil of Wren. The foundation stone was laid in
      1712, and the edifice was completed in 1724, but the church was not consecrated until 1730. A
      disastrous fire broke out in the church on the morning of Good Friday 1850, rapidly destroying
      all of the church bar the tower. It was thought that the fire was started when the regular fire of
      wood shavings used to control damp got out of control. Up until January 1850 the church was
      not insured, but one new churchwarden warned his colleagues of the prudence and necessity
      of the parish insuring itself against loss. By the time of the fire one premium of about £13 had
      been paid by the church, and the insurers had to pay out £5,000 as a consequence. The church
      was then rebuilt between 1851 and 1855. © Copyright Nigel Cox and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence
