Maidstone Journal and Kentish Advertiser, Tuesday 11 January 1853.

The annual smoking club dinner came off at the "Windmill Inn," on Monday last, when Mr. B. Roper. Junior, most ably presided, and Mr. G. Harrison, with his usual good humour and wit officiated as vice.

This society, consisting of respectable Farmers and Tradesmen of the neighbourhood, has been established for upward of half a century, and one of the members, who was present, (Mr James West, sen.) has regularly attended it for the long period of fotry years. The health of Her Majesty, Prince Albert, and every branch of the Royal Family, with every other loyal toast was duly honoured. The evening's divisions bore testimony to the good and brotherly feeling which constitutes the character of the men and gentlemen. The excellent dinner and it's necessary accompaniments, together with a kind of tension of Mr. and Mrs. Sivyer, merited and received the fullest appropriation of the numerous guests.

 

Kent & Sussex Courier 14 December 1906.

BEARSTED POLICE COURT. MONDAY. FALSE PRETENCES.

Edward Ernest Cross of Dover, was charged with obtaining 3s, by false pretences from Henry Sutton, of "Windmill Inn," Hollingbourne, on December 3rd.

From the evidence it appeared that prisoner told him he was in the employ of Mr. Palmer, of Stockbury, and was looking for some ponies which had strayed. He further stated that they were on Mr. Fremlin's estate, and that the bailiff refused to give them up unless 3s., the expense of keeping them was paid. He, therefore, asked Mr. Sutton to lend him the 3s. This he did. The tale however, proved to be false, and prisoner was sentenced to one month's hard labour.
