HAMMOND v KEATES

The plaintiff in this case keeps the "Great Mogul," a tavern in Adrian-Street, and he sued the defendant, who lives in the same street, for 6s. the amount of a beer and tobacco score, contracted partly at the "Great Mogul" and partly at defendant's own house. The defendant did not respond to the summons; but plaintiff said he was a stonemason, and was in receipt of 33s. a week. His Honour directed payment of the debt in three days.

 

 

The Mogul dynasty in India was founded in 1525 by the Mongols, a yellow nomadic race from central Asia. The British officiated later. But enough of that, because I must advise that in 1867 the name changed again to "The Bell and Lion" after the house being closed for some time.

 

From the Dover Express and East Kent Intelligencer, 8 November, 1867.

TRANSFER OF LICENSES

George Burnett, of the "Cambridge Hall," applied for a license for the "Mogul Tavern," which had been shut up for some time, and he also asked that the name should be changed to the "Bell and Lion."

The Magistrates granted both applications.
