(Name to)

188 High Street

Chatham

 

I have also seen this mentioned as the "Thistle and Crown."

Up to and including 1874 the address was given as number 282, the street must have been renumbered by the 1891 census.

 

This was owned by Edward Winch in 1880 when the licensee was Ann Tonkin although by that time the mane should have been the "United Services."

The pub is said to have changed name to the "United Services" between 1880 and 1890 but I do have reference from the Licensing Records of 1872 that says it was called the "United Services" then, unless this was a different pub withy the same name. Unfortunately the records give no address.
