Kentish Gazette 12 October 1810.

MARRIED.

A few days since, at Dover, Mr. Stephen Brockman, of the "Bricklayer's Arms" public-house, to Mrs. S. Castle, widow of the same place.

 

 

Brockman was in residence as early as 1805. The one managed by Houghton in 1832 was part of Charlton, yet another Houghton seems to have been publican here in 1852. I am hopefully going to solve this mystery in time.

Kept in 1845 by the widow Boyce.

 

From the Dover Telegraph and Cinque Ports General Advertiser, Saturday, 27 July, 1845. Price 5d.

DOVER POLICE REPORT

Ann Boyce, widow, landlady of the “Bricklayer's Arms,” Biggin Street, was fined 15s., including costs, for selling beer on Sunday morning, contrary to her license. Fine to be paid in a week.

 

 

It is very confusing at present as I also have notes of a "Brickmaker's Arms" at Buckland Bottom, neither that or this pub are actually in the Charlton parish, references to which pub is being referred to often missing from reports and with another "Bricklayer's Arms" in Snargate Street a lot of supposition has to be taken with what has been found to date.
