Kentish Gazette, 5 March 1844.

Two rather remarkable persons were buried here on Saturday. Mr. T. Hays died in the Union, but was removed here for interment.

He kept the "Queen’s Arms Tavern" in this place for 36 years, during which time, though a very eccentric man, he was highly respected by the neighbours and numerous landowners, by whom his house was visited. He was aged 76. Also G. Staines, aged 70, who died in very distressed circumstances; his brother, only a few years since, was known as "the hero of Thanet," Sir Thomas Staines.

 

From the Kent and Sussex Courier. 22 August 1873. Price 1d.
