2 Pagett Street/Watts Street (Ordnance Place 1872)

Chatham

Clarence Hotel

Above photo, date unknown, showing the former "Clarence Hotel."

 

The address appears as at 2 West Street in some of the early directories. In 1872 the Licensing Records gave the address as Ordnance Place and the owner Thomas Winch of Chatham and was operating as a beerhouse.

The hotel was sold in 1984 and the name changed to the "Rendezvous".

 

Local knowledge, further pictures, and licensee information would be appreciated.

I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

All emails are answered.

 

Chatham News, Saturday 27 August 1870.

Ordnance Place.

Mr. G. Winch applied, on the part of Mr. Edward Tremain, for a licence to be granted to the "Clarence Hotel."

Mr. Hayward opposed, and said there were a great number of licensed houses in the locality.

Refused.
