In the 1871 census William H Monk is an Licensed Victualler at 3 Belmont Place, York Road, Islington. This is the Belmont Arms.

You have William Henry Monk Junior at Prince of Wales in 1881 and he must have taken over from his father who died there in 1877. A brother Edward had also died there in 1872.
On probate records William's occupation is given as tailor and I believe this is the same person who was a publican, a tailor and a debt collector at various times. *

The Will of William Henry Monk formerly of 1 Goldsworthy terrace, Deptford Lower Road Rotherhithe but late of the "Prince of Wales" Tavern Plough road, Rotherhithe in the County of Surrey, Tailor who died 27 March 1877 at the "Prince of Wales"  was proved at the Principal Registry by Elizabeth Monk of the "Prince of Wales" Widow of the Relict the sole Executrix.

The Will of William Henry Monk formerly of 1 Goldsworthy terrace, Deptford Lower Road Rotherhithe but late of the "Prince of Wales" Tavern Plough road, Rotherhithe in the County of Surrey, Tailor who died 27 March 1877 at the "Prince of Wales"  was proved at the Principal Registry by Elizabeth Monk of the "Prince of Wales" Widow of the Relict the sole Executrix.

From information I have found I believe his father was licensee at the Golden Fleece hotel, Bermondsey Wall in 1843 when a daughter was baptized and at Goldsworthy Terrace in Rotherhithe from 1861 to 1871; so he  must have moved to "Prince of Wales" between 1871 and 1872. A third generation is William's father another William was also a licensed victualler at the Cricketers, in Orange Row in 1841. In 1851, Sarah Monk and son were licensees of the Cricketers, although son William was a tailor and with his family in Neptune Street in the 1851 census. Sarah was still at Orange Row when she died in 1855. They also had connection to another public house "China Hall" in 1847 which is the year of their youngest child's baptism but I have misplaced the baptismal record for that one. *
