217 High Street

Chatham

 

The Licensing Records of 1872 stated the premises held a Full License and was owned by Edward Winch of Chatham.

I am beginning to believe there may have been two pubs with this name in the High Street during 1793-32+. The other reference I have is to a "Ship Inn," in Wright's Topography of 1838. However, they could be one and the same and a road renumbering.

 

From the Maidstone Journal and Kentish Advertiser, 2 December, 1856.
