From the Kentish Gazette, 12 September 1848.

GENERAL LICENSING DAY.

Thursday being the annual licensing day of victuallers, in Canterbury, the magistrates were occupied some time in making the necessary preparations, and they granted licenses to a hundred and twenty-seven persons; four others being absent, will have theirs at a future sitting. The licenses taken from W. Cullen, "Queen’s Arms"; W. Hunt, "Three Grenadiers," Military-road; George Roberts, "Queen's Head," Northgate; and R. Walpole, "Roebuck," Northgate were restored; and the application made by J. B. Allen for a license of the "Golden Cross," Northgate was granted.

 

From a report to the Mayor and Magistrates in Guildhall on 17th April 1859.

"Sergeant Ells reports that he found the following number of Prostitutes at the following public houses and beer-shops yesterday morning:

"Queen's Arms," Northgate, 1.

 

Only found from the above passage regarding prostitutes on the premises. Unfortunately no other information has been found at present.

Latest research found on the "Poem of Canterbury" notes say that the pub changed name to the "Jolly Gardener's" around about 1867. My research says the "Jolly Gardener's" was there in 1858.
