T. Pell. Late Cork Cutter, Number 22, opposite the "Monks Head," Stone Street, Maidstone, begs to return his most grateful thanks to the Brewers, Spirit Merchants, and the Public in general, for the support he has received for upwards of 30 years, and informs them, he has relinquished the business, which will in future be carried on by his son, G. Pell. On the same premises as above, to whom he respectfully requests his friends will transfer their favours, which will be attended to with the up-most care and punctuality.

 

From an email received 28 January 2021.

I was just researching the label on verso of a little framed drawing I just bought - and saw “across from the Monk’s Head.”

Apparently this is the son of T. Pell - Cork-cutter, who left his business to his son in 1827?
