Now part of Greater London, this area was indeed Kent before 1965. Hence, I will be adding information regarding this pub as and when I find or it is sent to me, but at present I'll be concentrating on the areas that are within the Kent boundary today.

From the Kentish Independent, Saturday 1 September, 1849.

GREENWICH COUNTY COURT.

Tester v. Field.

The plaintiff who is a publican sought in this case to recover of defendant, a "navvy" the sum of 4 10s. 6d., for beer and lodgings.

Mr. Tester said that Field had gone and told him, that he was to let certain workmen have what drink they required, and he would pay for it. Defendant admitted that he had said so, as far as that applied to the time they were at work, but he alleged that the plaintiff had gone beyond his orders, and had supplied the men with drink when they were not at work. He had no witnesses to call, and the Judge ordered him to pay 4s. a month. The defendant, who did not seem to comprehend the justice of paying for drink consumed by his friends, exclaimed, "what pay 4s. a month for other people's debts?"
