    Public Houses in Sevenoaks

    Traders in 1858

    SEVENOAKS is a pleasant market and union town, situated on high ground, and is surrounded by a delightfully diversified country. There are many handsome seats, the residences of the numerous nobility of this healthy and agreeable locality.
    The town is lighted with gas, and consists of two principle seats. There is a market held on Saturday, but principally for corn. The population in 1851, including Riverhead, Town Borould, and the Weald, was 4,178. The church is dedicated to St Nicholas; it stands at the south end of the town, and is a handsome building in the perpendicular style, with a square tower, which can be seen each way for a considerable distance. The Rev. Thomas Curteis, M.A., is the patron, incumbent, and impropriator; the Rev. Cyril Curteis, B.A., curate; and the Rev. Edward H Boardman, second curate. Two episcopal chapels, with houses for ministers, have been erected in the parish, by the Earl Amherst and the late Multon Lambarde, Esq., with consent of the vicar as patron; one situated in Weald, and the other at Riverhead.
    The livings are perpetual curacies, in the patronage of the rector after the decease of the founders. There is a Wesleyan chapel, which was erected in 1852, by William W Pocock, Esq., a neat edifice, built in the Gothic style of architecture, and will accommodate about 400 persons; the Rev. William B. Dennis is the minister. There is also a chapel belonging to the Particular Baptists, capable of accommodating 400 persons ; the Rev. Thomas Shirley is the minister.
    The union workhouse has recently been removed to Birchfield, in the parish of Sundridge. Here is also a literary and scientific institution, with 1,000 volumes.
