    Walter J Edlin, born Q4 1883 Regency Tavern, Russell Square, Brighton. In1901 he was a Post Office Clerk. He married Millicent L Earney in Brighton Q1 1911. The HQ for their Brighton pub chain was the King and Queen. After the First World War it was a garage run by Walter Edlin and Neville Hodgson before reverting to a pub in 1932.
    The original King and Queen inn was a bow-fronted two-storey Georgian building on the site of a farmhouse. This had gained a licence in 1779 to cater for various sporting events held at that time on the North Steine. In addition the inn was also the venue for Brighton's corn market until 1868 when the Corn Exchange opened.
    The present building was built in the Tudor style by architects Clayton and Black in 1931-32 with carved timber framing, herring-bone brickwork, stained glass and tapestries. The interiors were fitted out by Heaton, Tabb and Company, a well-known firm of pub decorators. Despite the figures of Henry VIII and one of his wives, the inn's sign more accurately shows King George III and Queen Charlotte. In 1967 three rooms were knocked through to make a mediaeval nobleman's hall.
    Walter's father Henry William Edlin, born Q3 1848 baptised on 28 Oct 1849, in Shadwell Stepney. Henry was a Licensed Victualler. He was married Q3 1877 Fulham D to Emily Sarah Jones. (born c 1854 Trefonnen Shropshire) According to the 1881 Census they lived at the Talfourd Arms on Lyndhurst Road in Camberwell, Surrey. He was a Licensee from 12th August 1889. In 1891 they were living at 33 Russell Square, Brighton. He died in 1892 at the Regency Tavern Brighton and in 1893 his widow, Emily, became a Licensee. from 2 May 1893 until 4 November 1902. She died May 1938 age 91 at Gloucester Mansions Brighton. **

    George Charles Hollebone is the  licensee at the Swan, High Street, Southover, Lewes. George Charles’ sister Caroline Hollebone married Robert Geer, the previous licensee at the Swan. Another sister, Mary Ann, married William Inman, who in 1861 was the licensee here at the King & Queen, Marlborough Place, Brighton, which was probably the main coaching inn to London at this time. In the 1861 census Caroline Geer, Robert’s daughter, is a barmaid at the King & Queen. ***
