Mr Alan Wellbelove

I am descended from the Wellbelove/Welbelove line from Virginia Water / Egham / Englefield Green.

I noticed in Dorothy Davis' book 'Virginia Water' a photo by Alan Bostock of Edwinnsnbsp restaurant on page 115. I wondered whether this was the same building, formerly a beershop, at one time owned by the Welbelove family in the early to mid 19th century.  Also, there are adjacent cottages. The Welbeloves' also owned cottages and I wondered whether these might be the very same premises, or whether they are of more recent construction?

Many thanks in advance for any help
