1851/William T Prout/Victualler/25/Woolwich, Kent/Census *
1851/Ann J Huckstepp/House Servant/29/St Margarets, Kent/Census

Thomas Prout took over being landlord in about 1855. Prior to that he is only shown as a shopkeeper/baker (early in his career, including 1841 census, he was a rope maker but I think this was a particularly unpleasant job so Im not surprised he changed). Thomas lived until 1869, so presumably he handed over to his son-in-law Alfred Beale at about that time but I dont have any evidence for this. William Thomas seems to totally disappear about 1855 too he might have died but I cant find a relevant death registration of the time (there was a William Prout went to Australia in late 1854 and died 1862, and many of his Prout relations had already gone there but it is too early to confirm if this is the right person). *
