26 Whitaker Street

Chatham

 

The premises was operating under a Full License by 1872 and was owned by Thomas Wells, of Great Chart near Maidstone.

Up to and including 1874 the address was given as Rhode Street.

I believe the pub closed some time prior to 1936 and the license was transferred to a newly built pub in Palmerstone Road that became the "Ordinary Fellows."

 

Maidstone Journal and Kentish Advertiser, Tuesday 6 September 1853.

This being the annual licensing day, the following applications for licences to beer-shops were made, but refused.

"Brown Jug," Whitaker Street, Chatham, supported by Mr. Thomas Hills, and opposed by Mr. Prall. At the hearing of this application one of the magistrates had left the bench, leaving an even number, and, on coming to a conclusion, there were 3 for and 3 against the licence. The application, therefore, fell to the ground.

All the old licences were renewed.
