Waterman's Arms

Above photo, date unknown.

 

This was a tied "Fleet Brewery" pub in 1865 when the brewery was put up for auction.

I am informed that the pub closed in the 1920s and was demolished shortly afterwards, however, I do have the name of a licensee in 1930, so that information may be slightly out by a few years.

See Dartford Map 1905.

 

Kentish Gazette, 26 March 1850.

Robert Miller, 16, was indicted for breaking into the bar of the "Waterman’s Arms," at Dartford, where he lived as pot-boy, and stealing therefrom the sum of 4 8s. 10d.

After severe witnesses had been examined, he was acquitted.

 

Maidstone Journal and Kentish Advertiser 28 February 1895.

DARTFORD. POLICE COURT. SATURDAY.

Thomas Baker, a printer, was charged with stealing a concertina, valued at 2, belonging to David Fenner, landlord of the "Waterman's Arms," Dartford, on the 22nd November.

Prisoner got the concertina from the prosecutor as he said he wanted to go out to earn a few coppers. He was committed to 21 days hard labour.
