In the dead of night the sound of muffled galloping hooves can be heard, possibly those of the Knights on their way to murder Thomas the Beckett? A ghost has been seen in the bar dressed in 18th century clothing sitting next to a ghostly black dog.

DIED.

May 30, aged eight years, John, son of Mr. John Church, of the "George" public-house, Stone-street, Elmstead.

 

From the Dover Express and East Kent News, Friday, 31 January, 1873.

STOUTING INQUEST

An inquest was held at the “George” public house, Stone Street, on Monday last before Mr. Coroner Delasaux, on the body of Mary Ann Marsh, aged 15 years. It appeared that on Friday last she went to her uncle's house in Stowting to return a loaf in place of one her mother had borrowed. On reaching her uncle's house she complained of pain in the head, and shortly after fell down in the kitchen, whence she was removed by her uncle to a bed, but was then dead. The medical testimony showed the cause of death to be heart disease, and the Jury returned a verdict of “Natural Death.”
