Herbert Steel was the brother of my Great Grandfather. My Great Grandmother, by then a widow, took on the tenancy of Herbert's house at 49, Broke Road as of 1st April 1891 - might we guess that that was when Herbert Steel went to the "Northumberland Arms" ? Herbert died in July 1895 (he was buried in Abney Park Cemetery on 19th July 1895) so that would be the end of his tenancy or ownership. ***

Other family members included Charles Steel whom was at the "Crown and Castle" in Kingsland Road, and another pub called the "Robert Peel". His daughters were also in the business. ***
