    1937/Gus Pentney/../../../Kelly's

    I am one of the grandsons of the Gus Pentney. The Pentneys took over the Kings Arms on the 28/Oct/1928 (have the invoice for the removal of household contents from New Southgate to Waltham Abbey on that date, as well as the inventory of the pub's contents on the transfer).
    It also appears that the pub ownership was transferred from Whitbreads to McMullens at the same time.

    1949-1958/Frederick Stransom Robinson/../../../Personal History ***

    My grandfather held the license until his death in 1949. My father, Frederick Stransom Robinson, Gus' son-in-law' then held the license until his death in 1958. My mother, Muriel Robinson then took on the license until the pub was closed in 1959.
