Latest 1849+

Commercial Quay

Dover

 

A "Lord Warden Tap" was evident in 1846 and 47 but have only just found an address. The "Lord Warden" at South Pier never opened until 1853, so this definitely predates that establishment, although a "Lord Warden Inn" has been traced by Barry Smith for the year 1849.

 

From the Dover Telegraph and Cinque Ports General Advertiser, Saturday 18 July, 1846. Price 5d.

ACCIDENT

On Monday last a child of four years of age, son of ---- Pay, a labourer, lodging at the "Lord Warden Tap," on the Commercial Quay, fell from the third floor window, a height of about 30 feet, to the pavement. On being picked up in an apparently lifeless state, he was attended by Mr. Rutley, surgeon, and found to have sustained a fracture of the thigh and other injuries, from which he is now gradually recovering.
