I've recently found out my great grandfather (John McSweeney) was the publican/owner of the Royal Oak, Rotherhide up until about 1926 (his death); when his children sold the pub on. He was also the publican of the Shipwright Arms, for some time prior. Consequently he died a few years later, and his children (including my grandfather) sold the pub on. I still have his Day Book for the Shipwright Arms, although filled with personal / religious musings rather than any historical pub-related incidents !  ***
