PUB LIST PUBLIC HOUSES Paul Skelton

Earliest 1769-

Hare and Hounds

Latest ????

Sarre

 

Only the one instant of a mention for this pub so far. See below. Although this may be the same "Hare and Hounds" that I have also found mentioned as being in St Nicholas at Wade, as I have been informed by Peter Checksfield that the two villages are only a mile apart.

I also have reference to a "Fox and Hounds" in nearby Marshside, Chislet, identified in 1901.

 

From the Kentish Gazette or Canterbury Chronicle, Wednesday 10 May to Saturday 13 May, 1769. Price 2d.

TO COVER THIS SEASON

At the low price of Half-a-Guinea a Mare, and One Shilling the Servant, at the “Hare and Hounds,” Richford's, at Sarre in the Isle of Thanet.

The High-bred famous Hunter Spectator, Late the property of his R.H. the Duke of York.

He is fifteen hands high, well made, good blood, bony, and free from any natural Blemish.

He is a fine bright Chestnut, moves well in all his paces, leaps clean, hunts cool, and is a remarkable quiet good tempered Horse.

To fill the paper with his Pedigree would be needless' as his Make and Figure must inevitably prove to all Judges, that he has blood and strength sufficient for any Hunter.
