Dover

 

Thomas Cattermole in 1863, was the sole licensee I could find to connect with this one. That poor chap must have felt that you just could not win.

Previous to this pub being called the "Recruiting Sergeant" I have heard it mentioned with the same licensee as being referred to as the "Raw Material." It is also difficult to imagine a house with either of these names being packed to the doors.

After seizing a troublesome customer one day and depositing him outside on the pavement, he was immediately charged himself by a passing Constable for obstructing the highway.

 

From the Dover Express and East Kent Intelligencer, 21 November, 1863.

INFRINGEMENT OF LICENSE

Thomas Cattermole, landlord of the "Recruiting Sergeant" public-house, Buckland, was fined 3 and the costs, for having his house open at an improper hour on Sunday last; in default two months' imprisonment.

 

From the Dover Express and East Kent Intelligencer, 19 December, 1863.

The early business before the Bench was the transfer of a public-house license, - The "Recruiting Sergeant," Buckland.

Unfortunately the paper gave no further information.
