Statesman (London) 22 March 1820 :
General Election
Middlesex
State of the Poll - fourth day
Whitbread 1563
Byng 1810
Mellish 1176

Freeholders of the County of Middlesex.
Mr Whitbreads majority goes on steadily and uniformly. Every nerve has been strained by our opponent to swell his numbers on this days poll, but again we have signally triumphed. There is but one circumstance that can prejudice our cause - heedless confidence in the superior strength which we possess. It is this which may prevent its full development. Relax not in your efforts. Remember that Official Circulars on the other side must be met by vigous efforts on ours. Mr Mellish has condescended to borrow the plumes of Mr Whitbread. He calls himself the "Friend of the People!" Choose for yourselves. Gentlemen, which of these "Friends" shall represent you in Parliament - he who depends upon the undue influence of Ministerial Circulars, or he who relies upon your free and independent Suffrages. Be prompt - be firm - and you must be victorious. By order of the Commmittee.
Charles Shaw Lefevre, Jun, Chairman
Conmmittee room, Freemasons Tavern, March 21 1820.

1921/George Lee Barty/../../../Post Office Directory *

My great-grandfather, Alfred Herring was listed as the licensed victualler at the Clarendon Hotel, 1 Dock Road, Canning Town in the 1891 census, along with his wife Elizabeth [nee Bridges], their children Lily and Alfred George, plus my grand father, his sister-in-law Lavinia and her husband and some bar staff.
Lily married a guy named Ebblewhite in 1935 and they became the licensees at the Salmon and Ball on the corner of Bethnal Green Road and Cambridge Heath Road, in Bethnal Green. My grand aunt Lily ran the pub on her own until the early fifties when my dad took over for a few years when she became ill. She died in 1957.
My great - grandmother Elizabeth [nee Bridges] father, George Bridges was listed in the 1891 census as the licensed victualler at the Sir Robert Peel, 31 Skinner Street, Chatham in Kent. Originally, Alfred Herring and George Bridges were Mariners. ***

Frederick Hamilton Ebblewhite was son of John H Ebblewhite -  the owner of Ebblewhites music shop that used to be in Aldgate High Street around the time of Jack the Ripper, and he later had a large store in the City. The whole family are listed in the 1881 census in Wells Street, Hackney as Efflewhite, a misspelling. ***
