From at least 1891 to 1906 the landlord at the Old George Hotel was another of my many Bishop relatives. George was a crackshot with the 3rd Volunteer Battalion Duke of Wellingtons.

I remember drinking in the Old George pub in my late teens, I was 20 years of age in 1968. A local entertainer called Tommy Chapman would play the piano and sing on occasion, and many's the time I enjoyed a sing along session with him and other regulars.

The Tommy Chapman you mention at The George Pub was a member of the Savonna Dance Band of which my Dad (Bill Smith) was the drummer. They would go to all the villages around to play at dances.
