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.

Chatham News, Saturday 9 July 1870.

Denmark Arms Inn, Rochester and Maidstone Road.

Mrs. Humble late of the "Ship Inn," Chatham, thanks to return her thanks to her numerous friends and the public for the past favours, and to inform them that she has taken the above inn, where she hopes to receive a continuance of their patronage.

 

 

Kelly's Directory of 1903 give the "Kent Arms" with the same address as this, so it may have changed name between 1901 and 1903.
