Caroline Payne (owner of Morden Arms) was my great-grandmother. My grandfather met my grandmother there (nana was working for Caroline in the pub). She must have been married initially to a "Peters" - my granddad was Reginald Bernal Peters (later the owner of the White Lion in Cheriton Road). I suspect that her first husband (granddad's dad) was killed in the war. ***
