I have just come across your site as I am researching my father's family who were all publicans. *

From the 1911 census, I have discovered that the Pembroke, West Hill in Bournemouth was managed by my grandfather, George Porter who lived there with his wife, Florence, three of their daughters, Dallas, Marie and Georgina and their son George, my father. It was the last place George Porter Senior ran before being killed in an accident with a brewers dray in 1916. Prior to that the family were living at and running Porter's Golden Rose at 57 Old Bailey, London EC, which is where my father was born in 1906. I have a menu from 1904. *

There were possibly four Porter Brothers who also all ran pubs in London. I have found confirmation, thanks to your site, that Edwin Porter brother of George Porter Senior was running the Chandos, St Martins Lane, London EC in 1891. I believe the brothers ran other pubs in central London. *
