1882/John William Bliss/../../../Post Office Directory ****

The 1891 census shows that Matilda Bliss was the publican at the Kings Head Tap, Harrow. Matilda and he husband John Bliss had been publicans at the White Horse Inn in Rotherhithe Road 10 years earlier. Johnís family had been publicans in harrow for 100 years before this. And distant members of the family made a fortune selling wines and spirits before off licenses became the norm.
However John died, and so Matilda moved back to Harrow and with her daughters Matilda and Edith, were at the pub in 1891. **
