The new Inn’ was closed quite a long time ago but remember seeing it when visiting East Farleigh with my mother around 1938/9 before it closed and again since its closure. My mother told me she was born there lst November, 1883 .My grandparents were newly married when they moved in but moved after several years and the birth of a second daughter in Oct. 1885. My grandparents name did not appear on any of the lists held at the White Lion, or The Walnut Tree, but I feel that may be due to the fact that they were not owners, and possibly she was a paid employee. My grandmother learned the trade from her uncle George Hughes who was the publican at ‘Old England’’ in Hollingbourne. (also closed some time ago).The family then moved to ‘The White Lion’ in Dean Street where my grandmother was the ‘Beer keeper’. This is shown on the census 1891. I have visited ‘The White Lion’ several times over the years and lunched there. On my last visit it had just been bought by a couple about to get married who had obtained permission to change the premises to a private residence. ***
