The last owners listed of the Duke of Clarence were the HOWETTs, my grandparents. Cyril Howett died in 1948 and the pub was taken on my his wife Evelyn. She sold the pub in the 1960s and moved to retire in Surbiton.  It was certainly still a pub in the 1980s but I’m not sure when it closed for good. *+
