From the Kentish Post or Canterbury News-Letter, August 22-25, 1730. Kindly sent from Alec Hasenson.

To be sold by auction at the Sign of the Three Kings in Deal, on Monday the 17th Day of September next, in one Lot, the several Public Houses following, all lying at Deal, viz. the Sign of the Crown, late in the occupation of the widow Brockman; the Sign of the Bricklayer's Arms, now in the occupation of Stephen Forrest; the Sign of the Unicorn, in the occupation of Henry Hillgrove; the Sign of the Fleece, in the occupation of John Wealand; the Sign of the Globe, in the occupation of Stephen Norris; and the Sign of the Carpenter's Arms, in the occupation of William Savine; with another Tenement adjoining, in the occupation of Nicholas Ladd: the first of which Houses is Freehold, the two next are Leasehold for eleven years, renewable on a small fine certain, and the rest Leasehold from the Archbishop of Canterbury.



Deal Borough Records state that in 1776 the "Globe" refused to billet Dragoons.


The Deal History Society mention a Globe Hotel, West Side - top of North Street that was once called the "Scarborough Cat." Their date given being 1828. The Deal Licensing Records also mention that this pub was once called the "Scarborough Cat" but that entry was made on 1 May 1873. However, they also mention another pub just titled the "Globe," situated South End, and the dates 1674 to 1853. I am beginning to wonder whether this "Sign of the Globe" mentioned above is in actual fact the one at South End of Deal.


I seem to have another anomaly that needs sorting out. The address I have for this "Globe Hotel" and dates of 1882, seems to overlap that of the "Fox" which is also at the same address, which the Deal History Society give as early as 1869, and I have confirmed mention of it between 1903 ad 1913. In 1869 I think the name was still the "Globe Hotel." Perhaps there has been some renumbering that took place.


Further numbers found for this establishment are as follows:- Pikes Directory of 1908 as 199 Beach Street, and Kellys Directory 1878 as 184 Beach Street.
