Many accurate 1921 census transcriptions have already been added to the pub history site, including London, and parts of Middlesex. If you can contribute to the site, send me some details to Kevan, along with some description of the specific property.

In the late 19th century many members of the Pidgeon family of Kenton, Devon
moved to London, where several of them became beer house keepers, beer
retailers and licensed victuallers. Many of these publicans were husbands of
the women of the Pidgeon family, and their descendants, so that the name of
Pidgeon doesn’t appear very often. They were all descendants of Joseph
Pidgeon and Mary Cossey. Two of their sons, John and Charles moved to
Ashburton, Devon. Following are the children and grandchildren of Joseph and
Mary who were born in Devon and involved in running London pubs:
Mary, (1828–1873) married Henry Payne
Charlotte, (1830–1894) married (1) William Bennett, (2) John Hope Turner senior
Emma, (1840–1927) married (1) Charles Tucker, (2) Henry Payne, (3) Theo Redstall
Mary Ann Tucker (daughter of Emma), (1865–1905) married William Creeden
Emma (daughter of John), (1855–1892) married Thomas Gundry
Emily (daughter of John), (1868-1906) married (1) William Charles Hadden, (2) John McCarthy
John (son of Charles), (1858–1944) married Rosina Jane Farleigh
Emma Jane (daughter of Charles), (1862–1930) married (1) Thomas Cox, (2) William Creeden
William (son of Charles), (1865–?) married Nellie Jane Thompson
Henry (son of Charles), (1874–1905) married Maria Bull
Lucy Caroline (daughter of Charles), (1876–1947) married Joseph Creeden (daughter of William Creeden and Mary Ann Tucker)
