My Uncle Harry Sheath had both The Fox and The Kingfisher pubs in Gunner Street, Portsmouth up until they were demolished in 1970. *

He and his mother in law Rose Brewer were landlords. The Fox closed first this was just a beer house and the Kingfisher (previously The Carpenters Arms) had a spirits license and kept trading until a compulsory purchase order from Port City Council decided to 'develop' the area. Rose Brewer's sister had the Duke of Cornwall which was 5 minutes away in Lake Road Ports. Hope this helps. *
