 I was looking for 'Lord' George Sangar, the famous circus proprietor of the 19th Century, who died or was possibly murdered in 1911.  I found him at a yard attached to the King Harry public house, on the 1851 census. Lord George in chapter XV11 , pages 83-87 , of his book, 'Lord George Sangar Seventy Years a Showman' , recalls an incident there in the pub and mentions the landlord , 'Packwood'.
The census for 1851 show William Packwood, victualler, and his wife Sophia at 38 Mile End Road and George Sangar, and nearby, his brother John Sangar, are on the yard attached to the pub.

George Sangar married Ellen Chapman who was (my wife) Brenda's great-great aunt. Brenda's mother was a Manders who belonged to another fair-ground family of that period and beyond famous for their , 'Mander's Menagerie' . ***
