Researching my family history I found that three generations of my family were shown in the 1911 census as resident in the Red Lion, Breachwood Green with my great-grandfather shown as “Publican”. Robert French was a blacksmith all of his working life and could have only been in the licensed trade for a very short while as it shows a different licensee the following year.  *
