DARTFORD SESSIONS. WITHOUT THEIR MUZZLES.

From an email received 23 July, 2014.

I believe that the pub was run by my 2nd Great Grandfather, Moses Thurgood during the period 1861 to 2nd April 1884 when he died. I do not know anything at the "White Hart" other than the fact it was demolished in the 1920's. The site is below an existing road in the area.

Moses spelt his surname as THURGOOD but later named all of his children with the surname THOROGOOD. This maybe because his parents could not read or write. If you could provide me with any details that you have to date I would be obliged as I am writing to somebody in Australia who has an interest in Moses.

Regards and best wishes,

Terry Sales.

Hello,

Can you please put me in touch with Terry Sales, as Moses Thurgood/Thorogood is my great grandfather. My grandmother was Rosina Fanny Thorogood. Iíve done a family tree on Ancestry.

Also I would really like to know who else in Australia is interested in Moses! I must have close family here.

I live in Adelaide, South Australia, but coming to Dartford for a visit in June.

Please email me at the address below.

The pub was closed in the 1920s for road improvements which now covers the site.
