After finding mention of a passage in the Kentish Post or Canterbury News, 1730, at the "Sign of the Globe" I assumed this to be the "Globe Hotel." However, the Lambeth Palace Library have records that show the following:-


From records held in Lambeth Palace Library.

The deeds are held under the TA references shown. The starred number is the number in the 19th century rentals held at Lambeth.

TA 276/1-30 *195.

Leases from 1674 to 1853, but précis gives no indication as to whether it was the "Globe" throughout. As it was at the South End, it was obviously not the same house now called the "Globe Hotel."



Deal Borough Records show the following entry:- MS Council's Opinion 18th November 1776 - by Geo. Rowe, Inner Temple.

In the town and Borough of Deal are 30 Publick Houses including taverns and Inns, 18 whereof have stabling fit for the accommodation of Dragoons and horses and the other 12 have no stabling at all.

These dragoons (12 or 13 in all) were to assist the Officers of the Revenue at Deal.

The  following houses refused to billet the Dragoons for lack of suitable accommodation.

The Globe was mentioned in this list. Stephen Norris was the licensee.
