From the Kentish Chronicle, 31 January, 1863.

CANTERBURY POLICE COURT. MONDAY.—BREACH OF THE PEACE.

James Green (a returned convict), and James Atkins (sergeant in the 90th Regt.) were charged with a breach of the peace, shortly before twelve o’clock on Saturday night. There were a number of people assembled opposite the “Monarch” public-house in Lamb-lane, when the defendant Green said he would fight any man in Kent, as his time was up. Atkins stepped forward, and Green pushed him down, and also struck him. Both men were taken into custody.

Green was fined 20s., or a month's hard labour. The Bench discharged Atkins, and expressed their regret that he had been taken into custody, which would not have been the case if he had not been in liquor at the time.

 

Aris's Birmingham Gazette 06 March 1869.

DEATH. HOMER.

On the 1st. inst., at the "Monarch Inn," Canterbury, in his 77th year, Mr. Samuel Homer, late of this town.
