PUB LIST PUBLIC HOUSES Paul Skelton

Earliest 1658

Five Bells

Latest Feb 1898

(Name to)

38 (4) Queen Street

Milton

Gravesend

 

The pub was originally addressed as number 38, but after renumbering of the street it became number 4 and also changed name in 1898 to the "Dolphin."

The earliest date that I have is 1658, the name of the building is not known but the owner/landlady is recorded as Jane Butterice (later Barwick).

1709 shows that an Inn and Hostelry known as 5 Bells was set up and that 5 was paid to the Corporation. At this time James Griffon the Elder was in residence.

1778 - 1897 it was known as Five Bells with various landlords.

1833 there is a note that about a New Brick Messuage, (a partial rebuild perhaps?) with the owner named as William Kemball.

 

As the information is found or sent to me, including photographs, it will be shown here.

Thanks for your co-operation. Every email is answered and all information referenced to the supplier.

This page will be updated as soon as further information is found.
