Before William Oakley the publican was James Henry Coles. *

William Oakley had been the publican at a number of pubs before he took over the licence at the Clayton Arms on 22nd Jul 1909, so the Oakley's ran the Clayton Arms for at least 30 years. William was at the Blue Boar, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire in the 1901 census. *

My source for the licence transfer in 1909 is the South Bucks Standard of Friday 23 July 1909 which reported a number of such local transfers. *
