Canterbury

 

Only found one instance of this so far from the Stapleton's Guide 1838.

I also have reference to a "Globe" in Castle Street which doesn't appear as early as this one.

 

From the Canterbury Magazine, July-December 1834.

We were within an ace of being upset by one of the Dover coaches, which came rattling along just in the narrow pass, opposite the "Globe Tavern." It's a shame the corporation do not buy that house of Mr. Beer, and the two adjoining ones, and widen the entrance there into the city.

 

From the Kentish Gazette, 20 June, 1837.

June 16, Mr. George Richardson, aged 25, landlord of the "Globe Tavern," St. George's Street, Canterbury.

 

From the Kentish Chronicle, 20 June, 1837.

June 16, universally respected, Mr. George Richardson, of the "Globe Tavern," St George's Street, Canterbury, in his 25th year of his age.

 

From Ward’s Canterbury Guide 1843.

St. Margaret’s Street, before mentioned, is on the south side of the High Street; at the corner of which are the Public Assembly Rooms, and for the accommodation of the public another elegant Assembly Room has recently been built, attached to the "Globe Tavern," further on another of the principal inns, (the "Fountain"), and thence straight forward, Castle Street’.
