PUB LIST PUBLIC HOUSES Paul Skelton

Earliest ????

(Old) Half Moon

Latest ????

Coldharbour Lane

Hildenborough

 

The censuses of 1851 and directories of 1858 list both the "Half Moon" and "Old Half Moon" as being different pubs operating at the same time during those years.

I am not certain though whether the "Old Half Moon" is actually older than the "Half Moon."

Also with two public houses with similar names I am hoping the licensee list hasn't got any mixed up.
