My great grandmother was Sarah Jane Blewitt Griffin, her brother was Benjamin Alipore Griffin; their father was Israel Blewitt Griffin. Sarah married Henry E Morgan in 1882 in Paddington. I have a deed setting up a post nuptial settlement in 1888, which refers to the " Royal Oak but now called or known by the name or sign of The Bridge House and being number 213 Upper Kennington Lane". *

After the Bridge House Tavern they went on to own the Alfreds Head, Newington Causeway, (Elephant and Castle) which was sold at Auction in 1895 for £50,000 as a leased business (HM continued to own freehold); proceeds of sale were invested in land, housing development in the Kilburn/Willesden area where Israel- now retired- lived. *
