My family comes from Bonnington, Kent and lived in and ran the Royal Oak Public House for many years. My father was back to visit in 1969 and I was there in 1985. Although by then it was no longer a pub we did get a chance to see the inside. *

My Great-Great Grandfather Thomas Huckstep had it for years in the mid 1800s and my Grandfather Eldon Huckstep was born there although he emigrated to Canada in 1906. I believe my Great Uncle Stanley Huckstep continued to run the pub in the early 1900s. *
