    My relation Newberry Jesse Castle was born Lower Halstow Kent 1842. By 1881 he was running The Britannia at Lower Halstow. In 1901 he is running the Crown at Upchurch. I am told, but haven’t seen it, that some of Newberry’s crockery is still round the fireplace there to this day. ***

    One of his sons was Alfred Castle, born at the Britannia in 1878 ( so presumably father was running it before then). In the 1901 census he is running The Castle Inn at Eastchurch apparently on his own - I imagine a venture he set up himself. He married in 1901 (at Upchurch, April 8th) when he was described as Alfred Castle, publican, of Eastchurch son of Newberry Castle;  Newberry died in 1906 (q3) when it looks as if son Alfred took over The Crown more or less at once. He was certainly running it in 1908 ***

    Then the debts built up, or he wasn’t up to the job, in any event he took a shotgun and killed himself in 1909 and is buried with his parents in Upchurch. His six children went into orphanages but all survived! ***
