red mail THE BREWERY AND THE TAP
In 1841 Princes Plain (or Rushy Road as it was sometimes called) housed a Brewery owned by JA Jones who lived in Pembury House during the period 1874 to 1883 and which is still in existence and is used as a hostel at present. Jones and his partner Venness gave up the Brewery which was a large four-storey building with a huge chimney and many outbuildings including stables and a coach house. It became the Bromley Steam Laundry in 1906 where they would dry the cotton sheets on the grass; it was thought that the sun would whiten them more. A Mr Woods was connected with the laundry but unfortunately I’m not sure in what capacity. (The Woods family lived close by). Harraps (a celluloid film-processing factory) took the property over in 1913 but it burnt down two years later. The Brewery eventually gave its name to what we now refer to as Brewery Road. The Chamen & Jennings Steam Brewery supplied the Tap, which William Johnson of Princes Plain ran. John Simpson also looked after the Tap at one time as did Mr Pring in 1869/70. The Tap advertised their ale in the Bromley Record of 1858 at 27/- (£1.35p) for 18 gallons!! From book written by Gill Humby - Drinks all round - driking houses of Bromley
red mail Genealogy Search for Willows
I am looking for any information on a WW1 soldier by the name of Sgt.Alexander Willows who was killed in France May 1915. Born in Eastbourne circa 1885. He was a member of the Royal Field Artillery and enlisted at New Cross, Kent. Cannot find serivce papers at PRO as a good proportion of WW1 papers burned during WW2. If anyone can offer any information would be pleased to hear from them.
