Project 2014 has been started to try and identify all the pubs that are and have ever been open in Kent. I have just added this pub to that list but your help is definitely needed regarding it's history.

As the information is found or sent to me, including photographs, it will be shown here.

Thanks for your co-operation.

 

Kentish Gazette, 7 May 1850.

MILTON.

An inquest was held last week at the "Crown and Anchor," on the body of Edward Easen, aged 47, a fisherman, who hanged himself in his bedroom. It appeared the poor fellow had been much dejected for some time from the want of employment, having a wife and nine children dependent on him.

Verdict, "Temporary insanity."
