In the 1871 Census, the landlady, Amelia STACEY, was born Amelia FLATTELY in Haltwhistle, Northumberland, in early 1841 and was baptised at the parish church there on 16 May 1841. Also in the 1871 household was Letitia FLATTELY, her sister. Amelia married John STACEY on 14 June 1865 at Waltham Abbey, Essex.
Their father, Patrick Flattely, was an Excise Officer and, I suppose, would have spent a lot of his time in pubs, hence establishing the family connection.
On 07 November 1878, Letitia Flattely married Johann Ludwig REHM, a naturalised British citizen born in Pfullingen, Württemberg, Germany around 1830. He was also a licensed victualler, and landlord of the Horseshoe , Tower Bridge road, Bermondsey in 1881.
Another of the FLATTELY sisters, Mary, married William Frederick HIGTON, another Excise Officer, on 16 December 1856 at Newington St Mary's. **
I suspect there is a line of research on the interplay between excise officers and licensed victuallers, and another on how and why excise officers were moved around the country quite frequently. I suspect it was to stop them getting too cosy with the licensees! **
