My great-grandfather, Alfred Herring was listed as the licensed victualler at the Clarendon Hotel, 1 Dock Road, Canning Town in the 1891 census, along with his wife Elizabeth [nee Bridges], their children Lily and Alfred George, plus my grand father, his sister-in-law Lavinia and her husband and some bar staff.
Lily married a guy named Ebblewhite in 1935 and they became the licensees at the Salmon and Ball on the corner of Bethnal Green Road and Cambridge Heath Road, in Bethnal Green. My grand aunt Lily ran the pub on her own until the early fifties when my dad took over for a few years when she became ill. She died in 1957.
My great - grandmother Elizabeth [nee Bridges] father, George Bridges was listed in the 1891 census as the licensed victualler at the Sir Robert Peel, 31 Skinner Street, Chatham in Kent. Originally, Alfred Herring and George Bridges were Mariners. ***
