The original "Bell" closed in 1736 when it was converted into the poorhouse. This may well have been its replacement, and perhaps if the nearby church of St. Mary the Virgin had six bells in its belfry (local knowledge required) perhaps it gained its name from that.

 

Whitstable Times and Herne Bay Herald, Saturday 16 August 1879.

CHISLETT. DRUNK AND DISORDERLY AND REFUSING TO QUIT.

John Cooper, an old offender, was summoned for being drunk and disorderly and refusing to quit the "Six Bells" public house at Chislett when requested to do so by William Port, the landlord.

The defendant, who did not appear, went to Port's house at about ten o'clock on the night of the 2nd inst, and created a great disturbance, shouting, swearing and refusing to go away although requested to do so several times.

The Bench fined him 20s. and 12s. costs or in default 14 days.
