I have found that Philip Ockenden a distant cousin was listed on the census as the beer retailer/licensed victualler/publican of the Plough and Harrow in East Street from 1851 to 1871. It may have started as a beer salesroom in their house in 1851, then became the pub in 1861. He was retired in 1881 and living in Walton. *
