My great great grandfather, James Freeman Randall (1843-1888) ran the Bull pub in Cross Street, Woolwich from some time about 1878 and had previously had the Crown & Anchor, in Sheerness. His son (my great grandfather) married Annie Turrell, the daughter of Robert Turrell (1834-1917) who ran the Swan Inn in Charlton village from the 1870s until he retired and moved to Clacton some time after 1901. Robert Turrell's granddaughter (my grandfather's cousin) married the son of John Boyd who ran the Antigallican in Woolwich in the 1880s. He also died at some point in the 1880s and for a short while the pub was run by his widow, Eliza, until she remarried in 1891. ***
