TA 358/1-12 *277. Leases over the period 1680-1837

Leases from 1661 when Richard Bridger has the south part of the "Blewbore" (the north part also his was owned and leases by Chamberlain's Fee). This stood on the corner of Middle Street and Oak Street and was replaced by the "Royal Oak."

 

Changed name to the "Royal Oak" some time before 1794. However, I have information that a "Blue Bell" also changed name to the "Royal Oak" as well, so there is definitely some confusion over the name of this pub.

I am not sure yet when Oak Street was built, but perhaps the pub changed name at that time.

 

From archive material held at Deal library.
