PUB LIST PUBLIC HOUSES Paul Skelton

Earliest 1598-

Three Crowns

Latest 1740+

(Name to)

Goodnestone

Sandwich

 

Earliest reference found so far is in the Wingham Division Ale Licence list, which shows the "Three Crowns," Goodnestone, to be re-licensed for the sum of 8 shillings in 1740 indicating that the pub was present before 1740.

Another mention of this pub is 1770. From records held at the East Kent Archives Centre at Whitfield, they have 21 documents in a bundle that mentions the "Three Crowns" in Goodnestone Street (EK-U373/T6) 1770-1826.

This pub was sold along with another 16 public houses in neighbouring villages in 1826. The sum was 620 for this house but it is not known from who or to whom.

 

Sussex Advertiser 20 February 1826.

At the sale of the public houses and other estates, situate in the eastern parts of the County of Kent, which took place at the "Bell Inn," Sandwich, on Monday last, Messrs. Pott and Denne knocked down the following lots, at the sums affixed to them, viz.:

The "Bull," at Eastry, 1,190.

"Three Colts," Tilmanstone, 500.

"White Horse," Eythorne, 575.

"Red Lion," Frogham, 455.

"Rose and Crown," Womenswould, 166.

"Duke of Cumberland," Barham, 910.

"Charity," Woodnesborough, 710.

"Three Crowns," Goodnestone, 620.

"Admiral Harvey," Ramsgate, 1,150.

"Ship," Ramsgate, 1,250.

"Red Lion," St. Peters, 1,100.

"Crown and Thistle," St. Peters, 705.

"Crown, or Halfway-house," Sarr, 940.

"King's Head," Walmer Road, 425.

The "Duke of York," Walmer Road, 310.

The sale-room was most numerously attended.

We understand that the "Ship," at Ash, and "Crispin," at Worth, have since been sold by private contract, the former for 750, and the latter for five hundred guineas.

 

 

However, I am not certain exactly where this pub was and was under the impression that the only pub in the village was the "Bridges Arms" later changed to and still called the "Fitzwater Arms" today.

Further information hopefully to follow.
