The name changed from the "Skylark" in November 1871.

 

The doors opened for coffee drinkers at 4 a.m. from 1872 and three thirty a.m. from 1874. It was one of the few pubs allowed to continue that practice after 1900. Barker bought it from Satchell in September 1881 along with another 10 public-houses to Mr. Barker, Loose, near Maidstone, for £610. (Click here.) but on 1st February 1890 it was gutted by fire. Repairs must have been possible because it did reopen later.

 

1910 saw opposition to the licence renewal. That year five pubs still served in Beach Street and by 1912 the pressure was really on the "Brussels Inn" stood nineteen yards away, the "Terminus" 25 yards, the "Cinque Ports Arms" forty eight yards and the "Dover Castle Hotel" and the "King's Head Hotel" were both within one hundred yards. The station buffet stood opposite with the station itself at that time occupying the other side of the street. The last remaining portion of that was removed in February 1963.

 

1912 saw it referred and the licence withheld. The town was busy trying to clear the district at the time but obviously all the details did not reach the electorate. It can be said that the licence had lapsed by 1913 and the property at the end was leased by Mrs. Absalom to T. H. Gardiner. A payment by the town may be significant. It was for £75, being leasehold interest in respect of properties bought in connection with the pier scheme.

ATTEMPTED MURDER OF A DOVER PUBLICAN

The Ashford magistrates have issued a warrant for the apprehension of a man charged with attempting to commit wilful murder near Ashford under the following extraordinary circumstances. It appears that a well-dressed man who gave the name of E. T. Butcher was brought to the “Pier Inn,” Beach Street, Dover, on Saturday evening, the 15th inst., by an inhabitant known to the landlord, and was accommodated with an apartment. He represented to the landlord, Mr. Joe Fawcett, that he was connected with a firm in Liverpool engaged in supplying provisions for shipping, and that he was commissioned to buy pigs in Kent for the purpose of killing and salting down. He stated that he should want to drive to Ashford on Monday to make purchases, and invited Mr. Fawcett to accompany him. This the latter consented to do, and a horse and trap were hired from Mr. Styles, of the “Mitre Inn,” Dover, with which they started early in the forenoon. When beyond Folkestone the stranger alighted at Mr. Jeffrey's farm, leaving Mr. Fawcett in the trap. When he rejoined Mr. Fawcett, he stated that he had succeeded in buying thirty pigs there, and that he had left a cheque for £20 with Mr. Jeffrey as a deposit. They then drove on to Ashford, and alighted at the Market Hotel. Here a fresh horse and trap were procured of Mr. Andrews, the landlord, and the stranger, with Mr. Fawcett, drove on to Great Chart, in which neighbourhood he pretended he had another call to make. They made a short stoppage at the “Swan,” and again drove on. When they had got about a quarter of a mile beyond the village the stranger pulled up at a gate, and asked Mr. Fawcett to get down and open it, saying that this was the place to which he had to come. Mr. Fawcett accordingly opened the gate, resumed his seat in the trap, and the stranger drove across a field into which the gate opened. It was by this time dark, and when they had arrived at the side of the field furthest from the road the stranger asked Mr. Fawcett to alight again and open another gate. Mr. Fawcett accordingly got down, but on looking about he remarked, “You must have made a mistake; there is no gate nor no house here.” The man replied, “Oh yes, there is,” and jumping out of the cart, he exclaimed “I've got you now,” and seizing Mr. Fawcett by the throat he hurled him to the ground. The attack came upon Mr. Fawcett with startling suddenness, as up to that moment he and his companion had been conversing together in the most friendly manner possible. They were both perfectly sober, and thinking he had to do with a madman Mr. Fawcett shouted for help, whereupon his assailant knelt upon him with all his force, exclaiming, “If you say a word, I'll pull out my pistol and blow your brains out.” Mr. Fawcett did not believe he had a pistol and struggled desperately. His assailant drew a large knife and made more than one violent to plunge it into his throat. In this endeavour he was foiled by Mr. Fawcett striking his arm on one side, receiving in so doing a somewhat deep stab just above the left wrist. So near was one of the thrusts to his throat that his scarf and a gold pin in it were slightly cut across by the knife. By a supreme effort Mr. Fawcett managed to throw the fellow off him, and springing to his feet dealt him a blow in the face which caused him to stagger backwards. Mr. Fawcett at once ran off as hard as he could. The fellow jumping up in the cart drove after him, but Mr. Fawcett was able to conceal himself from him in the darkness. The man actually made a circuit of the field two or three times looking after him, but finally gave up the pursuit, passed out at the gate, and drove towards Bethersden. It appears he galloped on until he came to the “Bull” at Bethersden, where he stopped and engaged a labourer to show him the way to Pluckley station. They arrived there just as the last train was coming in. The man took a ticket for Tunbridge, and told the labourer to take the horse and trap back to the “Bull” and leave it there, and ask the landlord to give him half a sovereign, which he (the stranger) would repay when he came back for the trap. Mr. Fawcett in the meantime made his way to Ashford and gave information to Superintendent Noakes. To his utter astonishment Mr. Noakes produced an exact description of the man, embracing every article of outside dress he was wearing. It appeared that a Mr. Morris, an hotel keeper at Hinckley, Leicestershire, was robbed on August 20th last of a horse, trap, harness, gold watch and chain, money and other articles, by a man with whom he went out for a drive under similar circumstances to those in Mr. Fawcett's case. The name of the man is given in the information as George Jones, alias John Barfield. Other cases of a like nature in different places are reported concerning him, and there are warrants out to take him. Mr. Fawcett had with him a valuable gold watch and chain, and these articles and his purse the rascal doubtless designed at appropriate, and probably the horse and trap as well. He is described as being from 24 to 26 years of age, 5ft 9in. or 5ft. 10in. high, fresh complexion, full eyes, no moustache or whiskers, rather large and flat feet, dressed in a dark snuff coloured corduroy trousers, grey check coat, light check cap with peak before and behind, light muffler, and wore a ring on each hand. As yet his capture has not been effected, although the police have been making active search for him.

 

ANOTHER ATTEMPT BY THE SAME MAN

A Brighton correspondent, writing on Tuesday last, says:- Mr. Henry Gearing, landlord of the “Prince Arthur Inn,” has been victim of a highway robbery with violence. Yesterday afternoon he accompanied a young man (whose acquaintance he had lately made) for a drive in a pony and trap to Worthing. They put up at that town, and on resuming their journey the culprit took the reins and having driven to a lonely part of the district he violently attacked Gearing, robbing him of his gold watch and chain, stole his money, and leaving him upon the road drove rapidly away. Gearing was picked up by the driver of a market cart and conveyed to Worthing, whence he subsequently took a train to Brighton. The assailant, whose name is Jones or Barfield, is known to have committed other robberies of a like nature and under similar circumstances, and he answers the description of a man for whose apprehension a warrant awaits execution for highway robbery and assault with intent to murder at Great Chart, in Kent.

THE ATTEMPT TO MURDER A DOVER PUBLICAN

Our readers will recollect that on 17th September last Mr. Joe Fawcett, Dover, was murderously attacked a short way between Great Chart and Ashford, by a man whom he accompanied from Dover in a trap. The fellow got away, and a warrant was issued for his apprehension on a charge of attempted robbery and murder. On the 24th of the same month the same man attacked under precisely similar circumstances Mr. Henry Geering, another innkeeper, between Petworth and Worthing, severely injuring him, and stealing from him a watch and chain, £8 in gold, a gold ring, and other property. On October 15th the same man robbed Mr. John Bond, an innkeeper, on the high road near Salisbury, of a gold watch, massive gold chain, two very valuable rings and money. It transpired the medium of the Police Gazette that an individual of precisely similar description had robbed Mr. James John Clackett, of Dudley, Worcestershire, on July 30th, by inducing him to go for a drive with him to Bridgenorth, and on the return journey gave him something to drink from a bottle which made him insensible. Mr. Bond on coming to his senses found himself lying on the turnpike road, seriously injured, and minus his watch, chain, purse, and great coat. On August 20th, Mr. Tom Morris, hotel keeper, of Hinckley, Leicestershire, was dreadfully assaulted and his leg broken by the same man, who, afterwards threatened to blow his brains out, stole from him his gig horse, and harness, his gold watch and chain, some money and other property. He also attacked and stabbed Mr. Coppin, of the “Clarence Hotel,” Reading in August. Many similar outrages were perpetrated in other places, the victim in one case, which occurred at Coleshill, Warwickshire, being a woman. This worthy's career, which it is surprising should have lasted so long, has been brought to a close. He was committed for trial at the Worcester Assizes on a charge of assaulting and wounding and attempting to rob Mr. C. Grainger, at Pershore; also on a charge of larceny from a dwelling-house; and for the assault and robbery on Mr. Clackett, at Dudley, before mentioned. Mr. Grainger is, it appears, the landlord of the “Royal Oak Hotel,” Bredon. The accused induced the prosecutor to accompany him to several farmhouses in the neighbourhood on the old story, that of purchasing pigs. They put their horse and trap up at Pershore on the 31st ult., and the prisoner asked the prosecutor to accompany him down a passage , and when there he attacked him with a knife cutting him in several places, and at the same time demanding his money. The prosecutor received six cuts on the head and arms, besides having the fingers of his right hand slashed. Prisoner then ran away, but was subsequently secured. Besides Mr. Clackett, Mr. Tom Morris and Mr. H. Coppin fully identified him as the man who assaulted and robbed them.

At the Worcester Assizes on Saturday before Mr. Justice Lush, King, described in the calendar as a painter, pleaded guilty to having robbed three persons with violence.

His Lordship, in passing sentence, said the prisoner had pleaded guilty to three offences, two of which were the most atrocious highway robberies. The depositions revealed a most startling state of affairs, and could not look upon him as an ordinary criminal. In consideration, however, of his youth, and in the hope that a long term of penal servitude might eventually be the means of his reformation, he would not pass the extreme sentence of penal servitude for life. Still, he must mark his sense of the enormity of the crime by a very severe sentence. The prisoner would, therefore, be kept in penal servitude for the term of 25 years.

APPLICATION

Mr. E. W. Spain applied on behalf of Mr. Charles Wraight (late steward to Mr. M. Carthier, M.P.), for permission to draw at the “Pier Inn.”

The application was granted.

FIRE AT THE PIER

On Saturday morning a serious out-break of fire occurred in the Pier district, at a public-house in Beach Street, known as the “Pier Inn,” and kept by Mr. Wraight. Police-constable Brace, who was on duty in the neighbourhood, at 2.30 a.m. had his attention called to the fire, and he immediately obtained assistance, and brought the fire escape to the spot, ready for use if required. The Constable telephoned to Superintendent Sanders at the Town Hall, and the hose reel from the drainage works was brought out. In the meantime, however, the night staff of the South Eastern railway station which is opposite the house, were on the scene, and having fixed their stand pipe, commenced to play upon the fire, which had originated in the bar parlour. The occupants of the house were got out in safety, and the fire was apparently extinguished in a few minutes. Superintendent Saunders and several members of the Fire Brigade, who were quickly on the spot, brought with them the hose reel from Queen Street, and after examining the premises, left at 3.30 a.m., leaving Police-sergeant Suters with police-constables Brace and Hanson in charge.

A number of people had assembled, but as the fire appeared to be extinguished, most of them went back to their homes. About twenty minutes to four, however, smoke was discovered issuing from the front room upstairs, and the Police at once set to work to prevent it spreading. On the partition being taken away it was found that the fire had accumulated between the ceiling of the second room, and extended between the partition from top to bottom of the house. Superintendent Saunders was again sent for, and returned. The stand pipe with the hose was brought into requisition, and the fire was finally extinguished at five a.m. There was a good supply of water, but the house was entirely gutted, and everything destroyed.

FIRES

The Superintendent of the Police reported on the two fires, the one in St. James' Street, of which we gave full particulars last week, and the other at the “Pier Inn,” Beach Street, on Saturday morning, of which there are particulars in another column.

In reply to Alderman Adcock, the Superintendent of Police said that there was not sufficient force of water to reach the top of the house in St. James' street until the water was concentrated from other districts.

The Surveyor said he had tested the main in St. James' Street and found it had fifty pounds pressure to the square inch. The main valves were exactly the same that night as they had been before and since.

A rather lengthy discussion arose as to whether there should not be a greater force without turning on the water from other districts, and ultimately it was decided that a trial should be made from the hydrants in St. James' Street, to see how high the water would go.

 

From the Dover Express and East Kent News, Friday, 7 February, 1890.

THE PIER INN FIRE - THANKS

Mr. C. Wraith of the “Pier Inn,” desires to return his sincere thanks to the young man at the Post Office, who first discovered the fire, and gave the alarm, and to the South Eastern Company's servants and P.C. Brace on duty that morning, who so ably first put the fire out, with the assistance of those kind neighbours. Also to Superintendent Sanders and his body of men for their prompt assistance on the second outbreak, when, had it not been for their exertions, the place must have been totally destroyed. He would also thank Mr. Gatehouse and others who so kindly carried his son, Percy Wraith, to the station, while insensible, and for the assistance they rendered him. And, lastly, he wishes to thank Mr. McKeen, who so kindly took in Mrs. Wraith.

DOMESTIC QUARREL

George Stitson was charged with assaulting his wife by striking her on the shoulder with a fire shovel, and also with assaulting his daughter by striking her with a fire shovel.

Georgina Stitson, the wife of the prisoner, said that there were ten children alive, and they lived at the Brewery Yard, Bulwark Hill. On the previous morning, about 10 o'clock, the prisoner found witness sitting in a chair, having been ill, and being out for the first time, had broken down. Witness took him to task about leaving her without any maintenance, only having had 3s. from the prisoner a week ago. They then quarrelled, and the prisoner began to break up and put his foot through the chairs. He then picked up the fire shovel and threw it at witness as she was going out of the door. It struck her on the shoulder, and then rebounded on to witness' baby's head. Witness had to take the child to the Hospital, as its head was bleeding. The defendant was the worse for drink and behaved like a madman. He had not maintained her since she had been to the Union, when he had been brought before the Magistrates.

Police Constable Lockwood said that he went to the defendant's house on the previous morning, and saw one of the children, which was bleeding. The shovel which the defendant had committed the assault with, witness produced. Witness found the prisoner at the “Pier Inn.” Witness took him into custody. He had 2s. 1d. on him, and was in drink.

The House Surgeon of the Hospital said that he dressed the wounds on the child's head. It was an inch long and might have been caused by the shovel produced. It was not dangerous.
Caroline Stitson, 13 years old, eldest daughter of the prisoner, corroborated the evidence of her mother.

The prisoner said he should call evidence to show that when he came out of the house blood was running down his face from the assault made on him by his wife.

The Bench sentenced the defendant to three months' imprisonment, and made a separation order.

DOVER LICENSING SESSIONS

THE PIER INN.

This license was also opposed  by direction of the Magistrates on the grounds of redundancy.

Mr. Mowll said that he appeared on behalf of the licensee and Mr. Gardiner, who was the immediate leaseholder for the premises.

Mr. Spyh appeared for the freeholder.

The Chief Constable said that the "Pier Inn" was a fully licensed house, and also an early morning licensed house. The brewers were Mr. T. H. Gardiner, trading as the Burton Beer Co., Herne Bay. The present tenant was William Thomas Hunter, and it was transferred to him on 25th January, 1907, and there had been six changes in ten years. The rateable value was £30 gross and £24 net. The licensed house in the immediate neighbourhood were the "Brussels," 19 yards, the "Terminus," 25 yards, the "Sceptre," 73 yards, and the "Railway Bell," 128 yards, all in the same street, There were also  the Railway buffet, the "Rose and Crown," 59 yards, the "Cinque Port Arms," 47 yards, the "Royal Hotel,"106 yards, and the "Silver Lion," Middle Row, 68 yards. There were also the "King's Head," the "Lord Warden," and the "Dover Castle Hotels." This was one he mentioned in the case of the "Neptune Hall," Beach Street and a total number of 26 houses, including five licensed premises. The frontage was 20ft. 6in., and the house had a side abutting on to King's Passage of 26ft. 6in. The accommodation was front bar, private bar at side, and private sitting room on the ground floor, kitchen on the basement, and four bedrooms. He visited the house at 11.10 a.m. on Thursday, 20th January, and there were no customers; at 3.25 on Monday, 24th January, two customers; at 9.55 a.m. on Monday, 31st January, one customer; at 7.30 p.m., on Thursday, 3rd February, two customers.

Cross-examined: This house has been occupied by the present licensee three years? - Yes.

It has an early morning license? - Yes.

Why? - I do not know how many years it has had one.

Do you not know the object? - All the early morning licenses have been granted for the supply of coffee to men working all night.

This is opposite the Railway station and the nearest house to the Admiralty Pier? - Yes.

And it is frequently used by men coming from the boats? - Yes. It is open at 3.30.

Mr. Mowll said: In regard to these cases I only want to say a few words. I think the "Pier Inn" I can dismiss by saying that this man has been there three years, that he gets up very early in the morning, and he supplies what is undoubtedly a want - coffee, ad if people require it, intoxicants for the passengers coming from the early morning boats, and for the many men employed down there in the night traffic. One could imagine that men working on the Admiralty Pier on the depth of winter were exceedingly thankful to have a nice place like the "Pier Inn" where they can go and have a cup of coffee or something else if they wish it, or something in their coffee, as I believe some of then do after they have done their work. In regard to the "Neptune Hall," I do think I aught to offer you a few observations on that case. This man has held the license for 14 years. It goes without saying that as it is a fact that the man has got no other means of livelihood that he has been making a living there, or he could not have held the license for those many years. You will remember you had the case of the "Albion" before you last year, and then I suggested to you that the "Albion" could not very well be taken away because of the trade it was doing. You then invited me to offer the name of another house. That invitation placed me in a very invidious position, having various clients, and I could not with justice to them make any suggestion to the house that should be selected. The "Albion" was referred by you to the Quarter Sessions. But it was renewed by the Quarter Sessions, no doubt on the grounds of the very considerable trade it did. Now we come to this year. The "Albion" is left standing, and the "Neptune Hall" is selected for extinction. I think the very fact of the man having been there so long is some indication of the "Neptune Hall" doing a very decent trade, and I ask you to renew the licence. There seems to be a sort of feeling that it is almost hopeless to ask the Dover Bench to renew licenses selected by them for extinction. I hope it is not hopeless. It is rather discouraging to the advocate to find that the remarks he makes so seldom bear fruit, and that is particularly discouraging to me as being the unfortunate advocate who usually appears in these cases that so little success in this department falls to me. I can only say that it does seem to me a very hard case that the tenant of the "Neptune Hall" is to have his licence taken away from him after holding it for no less than 14 years, and therefore I ask you to renew the licenses.

THE DECISION.

The Mayor at once said: The Bench have come to the conclusion that the four licenses ought to go forward. Of course we quite appreciate the eloquence of our friend, Mr. Mowll, and if it were a question of dealing with a matter from one of sentiment, it might have been decided otherwise. We have a very difficult question to deal with, and the decision we have come to must have regard to the question of redundancy in the neighbourhood. before even this case went to Court great care was taken that those houses which we really believed are redundant, are those that come before the Court, and I think the Bench in this case are of the opinion that all these houses are in that category, and that it is important to do otherwise than to send the four cases to be dealt with by the Quarter Sessions.

The licenses were provisionally renewed pending the decision of Quarter Sessions.

It was a free house, of which Mr. T. H. Gardner was the lessee. The present tenant had the licence transferred to him on 25th January, 1907. The rateable value was £30 gross and £24 net. The licensed houses in the vicinity were the “Brussels,” 19 yards away; the “Terminus,” 25 yards; the “Cinque Ports Arms,” 48 yards; the “Rose and Crown,” 59 yards; the “Silver Lion,” 68 yards; the “Sceptre,” 73 yards; the “Royal,” 106 yards; and the “Railway Bell,” 128 yards.
