PUB LIST PUBLIC HOUSES Paul Skelton

Earliest 1769-

City of Canterbury

Latest 1770+

Address unknown

 

Alec Hasenson sent me details in The Kentish Gazette of 1770 that mentions an auction at the "City of Canterbury". I am assuming this to be a pub and not the actual City itself, and also for this not to be confused for the "City of Edinburgh" which was around at the time, but unfortunately no address is given and no names to help me here.

I would take this as legitimate at present as it is so far back in time and records are hard to come by, but I am hoping to find other mentions of this one day.

No sooner do I write that then I get an even earlier mention as shown below.

 

Kentish Gazette, or Canterbury Journal [one title]. February 22 to 25, 1769. Kindly sent from Alec Hasenson.

Advert for Cock Fighting at John Miles's, at the sign of the City of Canterbury, in Dover, on Tuesday, February 28th.
