PUB LIST PUBLIC HOUSES Paul Skelton

Earliest 1841

Sun

Latest 1853

Mount Pleasant

Bowling Green Lane

Dover

 

Matthew White died in his sleep at this pub in 1841 which necessitated an inquest.

In 1853, Wilson was said to keep a pub with this name in Bowling Green Lane. I am going to assume that the two pubs are indeed one and the same, as Mount Pleasant was situated between Cowgate Hill and Military Road. Bowling Green Lane is where Durham Hill flats now stand, just off Military Hill.

 

From the Dover Telegraph and Cinque Ports General Advertiser, Saturday 5 February, 1848. Price 5d.

DOVER POLICE COURT

John Lipsham, mariner, charged with attempting to hang himself. Superintendent Laker stated, that having information of defendant's attempting to hang himself at the "Sun," and the "Royal Exchange," he took him into custody at the latter house.

Lipsham stated that he had been drinking too freely, but had no intention of destroying himself; and promising not to repeat the attempt, he was discharged.
