Earliest 1847

British Tar

Latest 1874

(Name to)

27 Tower Hamlets Street

 

We know that Mary Monday served here in 1847 and that would have been something like twenty years before the other houses appeared. We are also told that four beer-houses were in the area at the turn of the century. The name conjures up many possibilities. In 1874, it had changed to "Dewdrop."

 

From the Dover Express and East Kent Intelligencer, 9 January, 1874. Price 1d.

TRANSFERS

The license of the "British Tar" was transferred to John Russell, the name of the house altered to the "Dewdrop."
