Joe Harman found in St Mary's Vestry Books about the Charity of 'Old Thomas Challice' which was to be paid from his house at the sign of the "Horseshoe" in Biggin Street in 1613. This is noted from time to time, e.g. 13/4d a year in 1639 and in 1739 it was 10/-. By 1730 the name had changed to the "Saracens Head" which was sold in 1895 for road widening, and the proceeds were invested to provide an annuity of 9/-. This house stood at the corner of New Street opposite the "Rose" which at the time of writing had recently closed its doors.

 

From the Dover St Mary Charities, Dover.

Thomas CHALLICE “Jan 3 1613 left to the poor in bread 10 shillings yearly, payable from a house called the "Saracen's Head," etc.
