Only known that it was somewhere in Paradise Street in 1854 with John Wray as licensee. However, in 1855 reference has been seen to a pub called the "Flower of Kent" the same street and same licensee. One of them must be an error, but which one is it? My guess is on the "Man of Kent."

From the Dover Telegraph and Cinque Ports General Advertiser, Saturday 27 January, 1855. Price 5d.

John Wray, landlord of the "Flower of Kent," Paradise Street, was fined 2 and costs for opening his house before the time allowed by law, viz., twenty-five minutes before 12 o'clock.

 

From the Dover Telegraph and Cinque Ports General Advertiser, Saturday 17 February, 1855. Price 5d.

John Wray, the landlord of the "Man of Kent," Paradise Street, appeared on a summons charging him with harbouring some of the Staffordshire Militia when the picket called at his house, but as no prosecutor appeared, the case was ordered to stand over till Monday. The Bench on this case occasion administered Wray for his conduct, by which he had rendered himself to a penalty of 20 or six month's imprisonment. As the sole object of Col. Talbot was to prevent a repetition of the offence, it is probably that the caution of the magistrates will have the desired effect, and that no further proceedings will be taken.
