Don't know if there is any connection to the keeper of the Hope & Anchor.

That's not Elizabeth nee Mogg.

Thanks gibbo for that link to the story re the theft. Mrs Emma Smith was alive in 1868.

... Emma Smith, a married woman, deposed that the articles produced are her property, and are worth £2 8s. ; her sister keeps Hancock's public house, Liverpool-street ; ... Harriet, the wife of Henry Mitchell, deposed that yesterday she went with Mrs. Smith to Hancock's ...

Death 7526/1867 SMITH EMMA - JOHN - HARRIET - QUEANBEYAN * 24 Jan

Right parents but now clearly the wrong death.
