Daniel previously had the Foresters in Wandsworth just across the river. In July 1884 Daniel Banham is recorded at the Kensington Special Sessions transferring the licence of the Eight Bells Fulham to a James Howard. My great great aunt Ellen Banham (nee Stumbke) was married to Daniel Banham - who is shewn along with his sister as being resident on census night 1891 - occupation noted as licensed victuallers manager (his wife and family were living in a house a short walk away). There is in the bar (or there was a couple of days ago) a framed photo of the pub with employees and a dray outside the pub taken I assume circa 1890 with "D Banham" on the pub fascia. *
