I've been delving a little into the Earl of Zetland pub in Notting Hill for my blog, and have come up with a few more details re. the landlords. *
In the 1861 census the pub seemed to be included in a different enumeration area to that expected. I couldn't find any reference to it in the 1851 one, but:

George Peachey died in 1946 and his widow, May, continued at the pub. When she gave it up her daughter Pamela, along with her Canadian husband Olivier Porrell took it on. (Porrell's Christian names were Olivier Jean which seemed to be anglicised to Oliver John on occasions. I presumed that he was the 'Bud' that is referred to on the pub's page on your site.) Pam and Olivier were still there in 1969 according to the Register of Electors. *
