I am again tracing my grandfather, William Woodley Johnson Kirby. I found him in 1901 census working here.  Amelia Rudd (the licensee)  went on to marry Arthur Edward Page Chandler in 1906. The brother-in-law, Charles Rudd, became a friend of Grandfathers, and he was "best man" or stood up for grandad at his wedding in 1902. ***
