Charles Balaam Pegler is at the Fountain & Star, 4 Castle court (1851) and Kings & Keys, 142 Fleet street (1853–61). Charles was on census night 7 Apr 1861 and as luck would have it traced a transcription of the relevant census return. Charles Pegler, "retired victualler", aged 35 and born Christchurch [Southwark], Surrey, was living at Park Cottages, Hammersmith. With him were three of his children, all born Fleet Street between 1854 and 1859 (plus three servants). I found St Bride Fleet Street baptismal entries in respect of two of the children (Oct 1857 and Nov 1859 respectively), the parents in both instances being Charles & Eliza Pegler. Eliza Pegler (née Vickers) was not with her husband at census 1861: she was visiting Charles's uncle, Thomas Miller, and family at Melcombe Regis, Dorset at the time. Charles Balaam Pegler, aged 45, was buried at Lambeth, Surrey on 28 Dec 1871. ***

On the 27th May 1851, Charles Pegler, Gentleman of 26 Ludgate street, and son of James Pegler, Gentleman; married Eliza Vickers of 2 Worship street, Shoreditch, the daughter of Henry William Vickers, Butcher, at the parish church of St Gregory. Note, the 1843 directory correctly lists Henry William Vickers, butcher, at 12 Worship street & 2 Worship street in the 1851 directory. The 1841 census lists Eliza Vickers, then aged 11, at Worship street with her siblings, including her elder brother William Henry Vickers, a butcher, aged 18.
