Local knowledge, further pictures, and licensee information would be appreciated.

I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

All emails are answered.

 

Maidstone Journal and Kentish Advertiser, Tuesday 6 September 1853.

This being the annual licensing day, the following applications for licences to beer-shops were made, but refused.

The "Wagon," at Gillingham. On this licence being renewed the Bench cautioned the landlady's daughter, who appeared for her, as to the manner in which the house was conducted in future, as there had been frequent complaints, and it was a disgrace to the neighbourhood.

All the old licences were renewed.

 

Southeastern Gazette, 30 August 1853.
