George Needham senior was the licensee of the Norfolk Arms in Ivimey Street (William Street). His wife was Eliza Pottier. Their first son George junior was born in 1827. This was just before George senior and Eliza took on the Norfolk Arms. Their second son Joseph was born in the Norfolk Arms pub in March 1828. French Huguenot Friendly societies used to meet at this pub during George senior and Eliza Pottier’s time there. George and Eliza Pottier’s two sons also became licensed victuallers.

The elder one, George junior, became the licensee of the Hare Tavern in Heath Place, Cambridge heath Road.  The younger son, Joseph, became the licensee of the Prince of Wales in Buxton Street.

Joseph, the licensee of the Prince of Wales married Emma Slater. Their second son James Vincent Needham was born in the Prince of Wales pub in Buxton Street in 1852. James Vincent became the licensee of the Grove Tavern at 51, Snell’s Park, Edmonton, London. This is shown on the 1907 marriage certificate of my Grandfather. ***
