I am the niece of Mrs Joan Hillier, wife of Albert James H. who took on the licensed tenancy from his father Alfred Edward Hillier. Albert J Hillier and wife, swapped pubs and went to The Star in Greenhill Grove (now Snowshill Road) in Manor Park, London E12.  I have heard the Star was Firebombed!!! The Chad was taken over by Dick and Gladys Scanes who later went on to the Chas Napier in Brentwood, and I believe their two sons, one of whom was Richard Scanes was either tenant at the Chad or the Napier. The Chad is now a restaurant, which I visited whilst they were still re-building. We used to have the cellar flap behind the bar and quite often you'd be standing on the flap and feel someone thumping under your feet as the only other way out was where the barrels were rolled down! Uncle Bert's father died in the pub and always wore wingtip collars and a bowler hat. If you look at the photos of the charabanc outings you will see him complete with concertina or cornet. Uncle Bert was a really excellent pianist. He was born in the pub in 1910 and went to Pitman's College. He always had beautiful handwriting. He and Auntie Joan retired to Bexhill on Sea and he unfortunately died in the GP's surgery from a coronary.  I used to clean Uncle Bert's car CGY3 which I think was an Austin 7, and peel the potatoes for his Mum Edith Hillier nee Viner. I have lodged a lot of the deeds and some photos in Valence House Museum, which should be opening again in January 2010; when I will be working as a volunteer there.  ***
