I have only found a couple of mentions of this pub so far, when it was mentioned in the Maidstone and Kentish Journal of November 1871 that the license of the "Sugar Loaves, Loose, was endorsed to Charles Judge. The census of 1861 called it the "Sugar Loaf."

The census of 1871 indicates an Elizabeth Harris, living with her son Herbert Harris age 20, and one 8 month old girl called Lilly H Harris. Elizabeth being described as a Beer Retailer, but the name given being the "Rising Sun" of which I haven't seen mentioned before or since. The census of 1861 gives her as a baker and beer retailer at the "Sugar Loaf."

Other research has shown the following licensees.
