PUB LIST PUBLIC HOUSES Paul Skelton

Earliest 1779-

Lord Vanes Arms

Latest 1779+

 

Plaxtol

 

Only found so far in 1779 when it was being sold at auction along with other premises. I expect who ever purchased it did not want to run it as a public house, and so it disappeared, else changed name, but with now definite address and not reference from another house this is so far unknown.

This was obviously named after William Vane of nearby Fairlorn (1682-1723) who was a British Whig politician who sat in the house of commons between 1708 and 1734.

 

Kentish Gazette, 6 January, 1779.

Kipps, on Monday the 18th day of January instant, between the hours of 1 and 2 o'clock, at the sign of "Lord Vanes Arms," at Plaxtol in the parish of Wrotham, Kent, subject to such conditions of sale as will be then and there produced (except sold in the meantime by private contract, of which timely notice will be given in this paper.)
