PUB LIST PUBLIC HOUSES Paul Skelton

Earliest 1842

White Horse

Latest 1885

Tower Hamlets

Dover

 

I found this pub mentioned by Barry Smith from his original booklet "By The Way" situated in Tower Hamlets. At first I thought that it was a misprint on his behalf or indeed from his original source and that it referred to the "White Lion". However, the date of the licensee named predates the earliest listing of the "White Lion" and probably the buildings where that pub was built. (To be confirmed).

So, according to the research, there used to be a "White Horse" somewhere in the Tower Hamlets area. I am hoping to be able to find further confirmation of this fact, but to date, nothing has materialised apart from two licensees spanning 22 years.

Further research has just found the following passage in the Dover Express of 1885, although this could be an error and referring to the "White Lion."

 

From the Dover Express and East Kent News, Friday 16 October, 1885.

The Tower Hamlets branch of the labourers' Union dined together at the “White Horse,” Tower Hamlets, on Saturday evening.
