Penfold - Wimbledon, Surrey/London

Hi - Have quite a lot of information about my Penfold ancestors between 1818 and early 1900's but would like to find some more recent history.

My Great Great Grandmother was Priscilla Penfold daughter of James Penfold (therefore 3 x Great G'father) and Hannah (nee Haley I think!). James was born in Catsfield, Sussex and Hannah in Hertfordshire (again - I think!). They were living in Wimbledon/Merton in a Caravan in 1861 - I believe one of the families they were with was MILLS who were in tents. James was a Hawker later becoming a beer seller and ran a beer house called the Corner Pin in Abbey Road, South Wimbledon (Merton).

Priscilla married and became Priscilla Knott and her daughter Hannah Knott lived with the Grandparents (James & Hannah) at the Corner Pin pub.

If anyone out there knows anything about this family I would be grateful for any further information.
