3 Beach Street

 

Originally called the "Hotel-de-Brussels" it seems this pub changed name to a more Foreign sounding "Bruxelles Inn" in about 1854, but some time after that date it changed again to the "Brussels Inn". I can only assume that either the spelling was more convenient to resort to the more familiar Brussels spelling, or that the spelling of Bruxelles was a mistake in the first place.

CORONER'S INQUEST

An inquest was held on Thursday, before George T. Thompson, Esquire. Coroner of the Borough, at the "Bruxelles Inn," Beach Street, on the body of a mariner picked up off this port, by a Deal boat, on Wednesday. The evidence went no further than the identification of the body as that of Adam Golden, aged 27, of Hastings, and one of the crew of the schooner "Sprightly," of Folkestone, where deceased has left a wife and two children. As there was nothing to show how death resulted, save a report of his being lost on the 16th ult., the enquiry was adjourned to the 22nd inst., when the "Sprightly" will in all probability be returned from her present voyage.
