57 Broad Street

Canterbury

 

The Marquis of Lorne had this title from between 1847 and 1900, otherwise known as John George Edward Henry Douglass Sutherland Campbell, or the 9th Duke of Argyll, was born on 6th August 1845 and died on the 2nd may 1914. The pub was obviously named in his honour some time after 1862 as it was then referred to as the "Britannia."

The name changed to the "Exeter," about 1888. In 1885 James Ditton was fined 5 with 19s 6d costs for allowing his premises to be used as a brothel. He had to forfeit his licence and was disqualified for ever for holding any licence for the sale of intoxicating liquors.

Edward Wilmott in his book Lost Pubs of Canterbury suggests the pub was adjoined with the "Exeter," and had previously operated as separate pubs.
