Project 2014 has been started to try and identify all the pubs that are and have ever been open in Kent. I have just added this pub to that list but your help is definitely needed regarding it's history.

As the information is found or sent to me, including photographs, it will be shown here.

Thanks for your co-operation.


Gravesend Journal, Saturday 11th April 1885.

Boughton Blean.

Alleged Death of a Child from Neglect at Boughton.

On Wednesday last, an inquest was held at the "Fox Inn," Overland, Boughton, before Mr. R. M. Mercer, coroner, on the body of Annie Elizabeth Potts, age 1-year, daughter of William Potts, a labourer in the employ of Mr. Chambers, at Overland Farm.

The enquiry was instituted in consequence of certain rumours which had got abroad that the death of the deceased had been brought about from want of proper treatment and nourishment. However, there seemed to be but little foundation for them, and the jury returned a verdict of "Death from natural causes."

The prisoners were ordered to be conveyed back to their ship in civil custody.
