In the 1871 census, the publican was Charles William Grattan Bill. He was the brother of Elizabeth Butcher who inherited the Duke of Clarence, 186 Rotherhithe Street, from her first husband Jeremiah Pilon. She is my Great Great Grandmother, and married George Butcher in 1859, after the death of Jeremiah. ***
