You have William Henry Monk Junior at Prince of Wales in 1881 and he must have taken over from his father who died there in 1877. A brother Edward had also died there in 1872.
On probate records William's occupation is given as tailor and I believe this is the same person who was a publican, a tailor and a debt collector at various times. *

From information I have found I believe his father was licensee at the Golden Fleece hotel, Bermondsey Wall in 1843 when a daughter was baptized and at Goldsworthy Terrace in Rotherhithe from 1861 to 1871; so he  must have moved to "Prince of Wales" between 1871 and 1872. A third generation is William's father another William was also a licensed victualler at the Cricketers, in Orange Row in 1841. In 1851, Sarah Monk and son were licensees of the Cricketers, although son William was a tailor and with his family in Neptune Street in the 1851 census. Sarah was still at Orange Row when she died in 1855. They also had connection to another public house "China Hall" in 1847 which is the year of their youngest child's baptism but I have misplaced the baptismal record for that one. *

George Cooper was my grandfather; he was brought up by his aunt and uncle. His uncle Tom McCarthy ran many pubs in Hackney and Bethnal Green around this time; the family story is that he was always losing his licence for allowing after hours drinking. Caroline’s (she is more usually called Catherine) maiden name was Whitehead. Her sister Ellen Whitehead married John T Holliwell, who also ran pubs in Hackney including the Green Man in Shacklewell Lane. This would confirm the Weavers Arms, in the 1891 census as being a McCarthy pub. ***
