Maidstone Telegraph 11 September 1869.

LICENSING DAY FOR ROCHESTER DISTRICT.

On Thursday, the county magistrates sat for the purpose of granting licenses to beer-houses.

There were present the Earl of Darnley, Rev. J. J. Mafsham, T. H. Baker, Esq., Rev. A. Smith-Masters, and Col. Bingham, C. B. All the applications were granted with the exception of the following:-

The following applications for renewals were refused:- "East End Wonder," High-street, Chatham; "Black Robin," Wouldham; "Fortune of War," Upper-wood-street, Old Brompton; "Victory," Middle-street, Brompton; "Old Tally Ho," High-street, Chatham. A number of persons who had been convicted for offences against the tenor of their licenses were cautioned by the Bench, and in most eases the licenses granted.
