Rainham

 

The Rainham Poor Book of 1766 makes reference to a John Wakeley:- Spent at the "George." Passing my Accounts 1.

I have also seen reference from vestry meetings written in the Gillingham Chronicles by a Mr. Baldwin that mentions the "George" in Moor Street as early as 1770.

 

From The South Eastern Gazette, Tuesday, 21 September, 1858.

At the Petty Sessions, last week, Samuel Beeching, of the "Star," Sittingbourne; Henry Kitchingham, of the "George and Dragon," Lower Rainham, and Alfred Gardler, of the "Sons of Sheppy," Minster, were fined for having their houses open at unlawful hours.
