I'm still not certain about these three pubs; the "Fleur
de Luce," the "Fleur di Lis" and
the "Three Fleurs de Luce," as
slightly different addresses have been given for each of them, but I would
say that the "Three Fleurs de Luce"
and the "Fleur de Luce" are one and
the same but referred to slightly differently.
The Deal Licensing Records call it an Alehouse and the "Three Fleurs de
Luce" in 1828, but back to the "Fleur de Lis" again in 1839, still an

BOROUGH PETTY SESSIONS
Mr. W. Popkiss Myhill applied to have the license of the "Fleur-de-Lis,"
public-house, Union Street, endorsed from the former landlord, Mr.
Thomas Langley, to himself.
The Magistrates informed the applicant that there had been a
complaint made by the police of the house having been recently found
open at an improper hour, and inquired whether he could give any
explanation of that circumstance.
Mr. Myhill said that on the night in question he closed the tap-room
about 20 minutes to 12, but just as the people were going through the
passage a young sailor came in with another man, whom he treated with a
glass of beer, which they stood at the bar and drank. He locked the
front door at five minutes to twelve o'clock to prevent anyone else
going in, but before the two men at the bar left the police came and he
told them to do their duty. If he could have had any power over the two
men he should have got them out before.
Supt. Parker said the police had to knock five times before they
could obtain admittance, and when they did get in they were insulted by
the applicant's son, who even struck the constable. Mr. Myhill himself
was almost as bad as his son, and this was not the first time he had
Mr. Brown said they did not want to hear anything further of the
subject, but the applicant must understand that his license would not be
renewed if improprieties of this kind were allowed. Under the
circumstances the application would this time be granted.
The Clerk said that public-houses and beer-shops were now under
different restrictions, and the Magistrates had much more authority over
them than formerly.

Loose Letter. Dated 30 June 1875.
From D. W. Hills to F. Mercer Esq., requesting the latter to apply
for the transfer of the licence of the "Fleur de Lis" Union Street, to
new inn to be built at North West corner of King Street, opposite the
Renewal of licence not granted. 9 September, 1875.
And that, as we say, is the last I heard about that pub. New pub still to
be named by me I'm afraid, if indeed it was built.
