My father, Joseph Henry Hunt was landlord of the Jacobs Well, 17 New Inn Yard, Curtain Road, Shoreditch EC2 in 1931 to 1932. This was his first pub and he left it to move to the Castle Hotel, 21 Thames Street, Sunbury on Thames, which he ran from at least 1935 to 1938. *
Then, after a short spell running an off-licence at White Lane, Alton, Hampshire, he was landlord of the Cross Lances public house, Hansworth Road, Hounslow, circa 1938 to 1941.
That was his last pub. He moved out of London during the War and emigrated to New Zealand in 1945 where his descendants now live. This information comes from family information passed on, notes on the back of photographs and Joseph's driving licence.
