DOVER CASTLE, Graham Street

23 Graham Street
1869               John Rawsthorne
1871               Thomas Fenton
1875               Christopher Oldfield
1875               Richard Walne

1907              Mrs. Billington
1910              John Thompson
1913 - 17      Thomas Butler
1924              Charles Owen - the house belonged to the Cornbrook Brewery Company.  The police 
                                               opposed the renewal of the license on the grounds that there were three fully 
                                               licensed houses and three beerhouses within a radius of 339 yards, and that 
                                               this one could be taken away without causing any inconvenience. The other 
                                               licensed premises in the neighbourhood were all better suited structurally than
                                               the Dover Castle Inn.
                                               The only conviction against the house was 10 years ago (c.1914)

I have note saying that William Hoggarth was the landlord in 1914.
