Only reference found so far is in the Wingham Division Ale Licence list, which shows the "Rose," Wickhambreaux, to be re-licensed for the sum of 8 shillings in 1740 indicating that the pub was present before 1740.
According to Donald Stuart's book "Old Kent Inns" Wickhambreaux is Wicham in AD 948, and Wykham Breuhuse by 1270, from the de Brayhuse family." The "Rose Inn" dates back to 1302 just after the first Prince of Wales was created and recorded as a farmhouse in the Domesday Book of 1086.
