HOLDING v. WALL
Plaintiff, a brewer, of Canterbury, claimed £1 10s. for a barrel of
beer supplied to the defendant, a licensed victualler, living in
Hawkesbury Street, Dover. (Probably of the "Albion.")
Plaintiff purchased the "Eagle Brewery," at Canterbury from Mr.
Small, in March, 1867, and the sum of 30s. was due from defendant for a
barrel of beer supplied while Mr. Small carried on the business for him
after that date.
Mr. Small, who sold plaintiff his business, said that £9 was owed by
plaintiff when he disposed of the business, which defendant paid. After
that, on the 8th April, and during the time he was managing the business
for plaintiff, a barrel of beer was supplied to defendant.
Defendant argued that he paid the whole of his debts due to Mr. Small
when the bill was sent in at Midsummer, 1867.
His Honour gave verdict for plaintiff, as he held his books to be

“The brewery was sold to B.C. Bushell & Co. of the Black Eagle
Brewery, Westerham who continued brewing in Canterbury until 1899”
