From the Deal, Walmer, and Sandwich Mercury, 9 October, 1869. 1d.


Thomas Jull, landlord of the "Wheatsheaf," public-house, Gladtone Road, was summonsed for having his house open for the sale of beer, at a quarter past eleven on the morning of Sunday the 26th Sept., the same for not being for the serving of refreshment to lodgers or travellers.

Mr. Mourilyan appeared for the defendant.

P.S. Brothers deposed as follows: On the day in question, the 26th of Sept., I went to the "Wheatsheaf," public-house, Gladsone Road, kept by the defendant. I went there about half-past eleven o'clock in the morning. I tried the front door which I found shut and fastened. I knocked at the door, and a female, Mrs. Jull, I believe said, "Who's there?" I replied "police," and she then let me in. I said, "I have come according to promise; have you got anybody in the house?" She said, "No one but old Jimmy White, a lodger," and I saw him sitting in the kitchen. I then turned into the left-hand room to see if there were anybody there, and at that moment up came Mr. Jull, who wanted me to have something to drink, but I refused. Whilst cautioning the defendant before I left Mrs. Jull said, "I have got a marine in the kitchen but he is on pass." I then went into the kitchen and there saw a marine sitting on a form with a female named Gibbs. I said "This person is not a lodger," and the marine said, "She lodged here last night." I examined the marine's pass and saw that he was stationed at Walmer Barracks, and that the pass was for Ramsgate. I advised him to leave the house, and Mrs. Jull then flew into a temper. I reported the case to Supt. Parker.

Mr. Mourilyan said that according to the evidence of the police-sergeant, the marine was clearly a traveller, and appealed to the Magistrates whether there was any cause for him to answer.

After a brief deliberation with the Clerk, the Magistrates said they should dismiss the case, as the person found in the house came, they considered under the denomination of a traveller.



Changed name on 9 September 1875 to become the "Victoria" by Elizabeth Jull on transfer to her of the licence.
