The Canterbury Directory of 1878 identifies the "Plasterer's Arms," not to be confused with the "Plasterer's Tavern" in Northgate Street.

 

Canterbury Journal, Kentish Times and Farmers' Gazette, Saturday 16 September 1871.

Annual Licensing Meeting.

An application was made on behalf of George Fowler, who lately kept the noted "Plasterers' Arms," Northgate, for a transfer to be made to Charles Turmine. Mr. Sprague stated to the Bench that this had been a very badly conducted house, and that only as recently as the previous petty sessions a case had been brought forward where a married woman had been convicted of robbing a man at the "Plasterers’ Arms," in broad daylight. He questioned the applicant (Turmine) as to the propriety of allowing this sort of conduct, and on Turrnine attempting to evade the fact by stating that he was from home on the occasion referred to, the deputy Clerk remarked that, as he had stated, his (Turmine’s) sister was there; it was a most disgraceful thing on her part to tolerate such a system. Mr. Drury (one of the magistrates) made some very strong comments upon the conduct of Turmine and those related to him, in allowing such disgraceful behaviour at his house. After much deliberation, and a very severe caution from the Mayor, the licence was transferred to Turmine.
