15 High Street

Canterbury

 

According to Edward Wilmot in his book "Inns of Canterbury" this house was originally called the "Queen's Head," changing name to the "White Horse" in 1837 and then the "Chequers" for a few years until 1848 when it changed name again to the "Bell." However I have reference to Edward Christie being the licensee of the same "White Horse" in 1847.

Further research also sees this turn up under the name of the "Chequers" in the Pigot's Directory of 1824. Perhaps Edward Wilmot got the order of names wrong.
