PUB LIST PUBLIC HOUSES Barry Smith and Paul Skelton

Earliest 1545-

Rose

Latest 1732+

Key at the Pier

Dover

 

A "Rose Inn" shows in the census of 1545 that it had 12 beds and stabling and that a Thomas Foxley was the licensee and a halfpenny coinage token of 1666 shows that Thomas Green of Dover was at "The Rose" that year. With so many pubs called the "Rose" in Dover over the years, and without further information, it is unknown whether the tokens were actually from the same pub as the one mentioned in 1545.

Another "Rose" from early years was mentioned by Barry Smith from Buckland.

From further research found in the Kent Post of 1732, I may have found the whereabouts of this pub, if indeed it is the same.
