MR. N. C. ALLRIGHT. PASSING OF OLD TOWNSMAN.

To the regret of all who knew him, an old and popular resident of Ramsgate has passed away in Mr. Henry Charles Allright, of 7, Napleton-road.

Mr. Allright who was seventy-four years of age, had only recently given up the licence of the "Lord Nelson Inn," Queen-street, to take a well-earned rest; which, unfortunately, he did not long live to enjoy. For twenty years he had been the landlord of the "Nelson," and he held the respect of a very wide circle on account of his happy manner and straightforward style. The licence of the house had been in his name of Allright for 74 years, Mr. H. C. Allright’s father, Mr. George Nicholson Allright, having been landlord for 54 years when he died.

The funeral took place at Ramsgate Cemetery on Tuesday, the Rev. E. L. Hawes officiating, the mass of beautiful floral emblems placed upon the coffin included tributes from Messrs. Tomson and Wotton. Ltd., and the employees of Mr. W. Haskings, whose yard and premises adjoin the "Lord Nelson Inn."

 

Thanet Times, 3 September, 1963.

They are hoping that television star Benny Hill will hear them in action one day, for one of the groups is related to Benny. Flint Yates is the vocalist and the percussion man is Roger Saunders. The
lead guitar is played by Phillip Daisey and the rhythm and bass guitarists are Malcolm Lyndsell and John Austin.

 

Thanet Times, 21 November 1967.

‘Severe sentence’ warning to man on pub raid charge,

A 28-YEAR-OLD RAMSGATE labourer was warned by the Chairman (Mr. S. Winter) at Ramsgate Court on Thursday that if he appeared before the court again, the possibilities of a severe sentence being imposed on him were quite high.

Francis McQuade, of Liverpool Lawn. Ramsgate, pleaded guilty to breaking and entering the store of the "Lord Nelson" public house. Queen Street. Ramsgate, on 7 November, and stealing spirits, cigarettes and tobacco, and 1 10s. in cash, the property of Tomson
and Wotton Ltd. The total value of the property was 46 11s. 5d.

Insp. E. Bushell said that when D.C. Spittles went to McQuade's home he found a quantity of gin, whisky, cointreau and brandy, as well as 1,390 cigarettes, 31 cigars and 18s. 4d in cash, in the kitchen.

NO EFFECT.

McQuade, who had seven previous convictions, was told by the Chairmen: "Prison sentences do not seem to have had any effect on you at all. We are fining you this time because of a letter submitted by your wife's doctor.

"We are not going to have any nonsense of this sort again, however, and if you come before this court again there is a good possibility that a severe sentence will be passed on you."

The magistrates decided that a three-year probation order made in December 1966, should continue.
