I also have reference to a "King's Head" addressed at New Road. This may well be the same pub. There is also another "King's Head" I have referenced in nearby Rochester. They could be the same.

 

The Licensing Records of 1872 didn't give an address for this establishment but stated that the premises held a Full License and was owned by the Trustees of Watts Charity, Rochester.
