Sheerness

 

For some reason this was called both the "Grapes" and the "Prince Regent" and was listed as both in the 1851 census. I am not sure whether it changed name from one to the other or just had two names. However, this can't be in both Blue Town and Mile Town at the same time. Something wrong here.

 

From the Maidstone Gazette and West Kent Courier, 16 March 1830.
