John Holland's [Exmouth Arms] sister Hester married Walter Benjamin Groves in 1903. Hester and John's father William Reuben Holland is the William Holland visiting Walter and Helen at The Crown, Commercial Road at the time of the 1911 census. William died later that year from septicaemia. ***

At the time of Walter and Hester's marriage Walter was managing the 'George Peabody' 146 High Street, Shadwell.
Walter's first wife, Alice May Harrison died at the George Peabody' in 1901. Their only surviving child was Alfred b 1896. Alfred went on to manage The White Horse at Hampstead which is where his father Walter B Groves died in February 1923. Prior to his death Walter had been managing 'The Kings Arms' by the Lion gate at Hampton Court.
About 1930 Walter's daughter, Lilian and her husband took over at the White Horse and remained there until after the war. They then bought, I think, The Beehive at Richmond and later moved to "The Rose of Lea" at Lea Green. ***
