The directory classed this under Taverns and Public Houses.

 

From the South Eastern Gazette, Tuesday 24 November 1846.

Child burnt to death.

An inquest was held on Wednesday last before J. Lewis, Esq., coroner, at the "Victualling Office Tavern," on the body of Charles Chandler, the infant son of Mr. William Chandler, of St. Margaret's bank, ironmonger, aged 3 years and 6 months, who died on that morning from injuries received from his clothes having caught on fire on the previous Monday. Medical skill was promptly applied, but it proved of no avail.

Verdict, "Accidental death."
