Folkestone Road

 

This is new find to me, as I have only seen the one reference to this pub, reported to be in Folkestone Road. Unfortunately no full address is given and no licensee names to confirm that it indeed, isn't the other "Three Colt" to be found in the Charlton area. Folkestone Road being some way from Charlton I am putting this down as yet another pub from the 1840s.

It has just occurred to me, the "Alma" wasn't called that till 1857, the battle of Alma taking place in 1854, so perhaps this was a precursor of the "Alma."

 

From the Dover Telegraph and Cinque Ports General Advertiser, Saturday 23 May, 1840.

CORONER'S INQUEST

An inquest was held on Wednesday last, before G. T. Thompson, Esq. Coroner for the Borough, at the "Three Colts," Folkestone Road, on the body of Stephen Munden, cabinet-maker aged 80. From the evidence of Mary Munden, wife of the deceased, at appeared, that about three o'clock on the morning while in bed, he complained of a violent pain in the head, but shortly after laid down on the pillow apparently quiet. Shortly afterwards witness perceived a change in her husband's countenance, called her landlady, Mrs. Crofts, and, on examination, found that he was dead. Mr. G. E. Rutley deposed that there were no marks of violence on the body, and that his death was caused by effusion on the brain.

Verdict:- Died by the visitation of God.
