Prior to the Albert, my grandfather, Henry Brockman, was here at the Whitesmith’s Arms, Crosby Row, Bermondsey. He was definitely here in 1908, as my Uncle was born here, and he and the family were in the 1911 census as publican. He was also listed in the Old Bailey proceedings Jan 1912 as manager. *
