The Angel was owned freehold by William Sowster (1731 – 1797) who in his will passed the premises on to his son William Sowster (1758 – 1826). (Both left detailed wills). William junior ended up owning several properties in Putney and Roehampton, such that the pub was run by William’s brother John Souster (1765 – approx. 1826) (plenty of records of John in the Surrey Licensed Victuallers listings over the years, certainly up to 1824), to whom the pub was eventually bequeathed on William’s death. *

William Souster (senior) (1731 to 1797) had 3 sons: William, John & Thomas; all were at some stage at the Angel *

William Souster (junior) (1758 to 1826) was the Son of William Souster (senior) *
John Souster (senior) (1765 to 1825) was the Son of William Souster (senior)

Thomas Souster (1765 to 1859) was the Son of William Souster (senior)

William’s other brother Thomas Sowster (1768 – 1859) also is recorded as being publican at the Angel in 1835 and in 1858, but he seems to have taken over after John’s death. *
