Only one instance of this pub found so far. The proprietor being an Amilia Solomon in 1865. I also have reference to another "Prince of Wales" addressed as 90 Cecil Road, which I assume is different to this as in 1865 the licensee was named as Charles Vokes.

 

Maidstone Journal and Kentish Advertiser, Monday 15 May 1865.

Selling beer during prohibited hours.

Amilia Solomon was summoned by the police for having her house, the "Prince of Wales," in Troy Town, unlawfully open for the sale of beer, on Sunday, 7th instant. Defendant, who have been previously convicted, pleaded guilty. Police constable Ford proved going to the house about 10:30 o'clock, and finding three men in the taproom drinking, and two women at the bar. Defendant said the men were all lodges, and she could not account for the two women being there at all. She was fined 2 10s., including costs, which was immediately paid.
