My great grandfather was Leonard Phillips; when he was married in 1888 his occupation is given as Publican. He had lived with his father at 339 Cheapside prior to his marriage. In the same year, 1890, his father died, and Leonard and his wife moved to 339 Cheapside where by 1892 he is listed as Newsagent. In later life, as per our previous correspondence he returned to being a Publican. *
