20 North Lane

Canterbury

Vicinity of William IV

Above image from Google, March 2009, I believe to be the vicinity of the former "William IV" public house, although I am not sure whether the building is the original house.

 

Another "King William IV" is found at 41a Union Street, but with Union Street and North Lane being a good half a mile apart, I am assuming them to be different pubs. This has also been referred to as the "William IV."

It appears that in 1889 the premises was empty.

 

From the Kentish Chronicle, 1 September, 1860.

Thomas Attwood, landlord of the "William IV." public-house, North-lane, was charged with having his house open for the sale of liquor before half-past twelve o'clock on Sunday. The charge was proved by Superintendent Davis; and the defendant, having been previously cautioned, was fined 10s. and expenses.

 

From the Maidstone Telegraph, Rochester and Chatham Gazette, 2 November 1861.

Canterbury.

On Friday evening and inquest was held at the "King William IV," touching the death of a new born child, the offspring of Mary Ann Clinton, only 15 years old. From the doctors evidence it appeared that he was unable to state whether it was born dead or alive. Under the circumstances the jury returned a verdict to the effect that the child in question was stillborn.

 

From the Whitstable Times and Herne Bay Herald. 14 September 1867. Price 1d.

ANNUAL LICENSING DAY.

The license of "King William IV.," North-Lane, was suspended until the 19th inst, when the adjourned court will be held.
