Thomas Foster was my Great Great Grandfather. He had the Camberwell Arms in the 1871 census as well as 1881. In 1859, at the White Hart where his son is born. And again in 1861 he was a Beer Retailer at 64 Kennington Lane, named the White Hart in the census. Later, in the 1891 census, his son Arthur Bradwell Foster (my Great Grandfather) had the City of Norwich at 7 Maygood Street Islington; whilst Thomas was at a restaurant in Sevenoaks. *

I believe my Great Grandad, William Henry Newby, was the publican/worked at the Camberwell Arms and that my Grandmother grew up there.
Her name was Ethel Rhoda Newby, she was born in 1919, at that time their address was 61 Kimpton Road. Not sure if they lived at the pub, assumed they had but then see the numbers are different. I am attaching a photo taken within the pub of my Great Grandad, and an assistant.
I did go down to Kimpton Road to see if the house/pub were still there but a new housing development was now there.  ***
