Details of AMS5681
Reference: AMS5681
Title: Deeds of Courage public houses

Most of the properties belonged at one time to one of the following brewers


Herbert Verrall Chapman (later Chapman Bros) of the East Guldeford Brewery


Edwin Finn and Co of Lydd, Kent


Hurst and Co of Eastbourne


Alfred Leney and Co of the Phoenix Brewery, Dover


Smith and Co of Lamberhurst


Star Brewery Co of Eastbourne


Albert Frederick Style (later Style and Winch Ltd)


The deeds listed here have come into the possession of Courage Ltd as a result of brewery mergers since the late nineteenth century


The deposited documents are those no longer required to establish title. The lists attempt to clarify the descent of the property to its recent owners: consequently, some categories of documents - for example, mortgages - are not noted separately, unless they provide additional information. Owners of adjoining property, too, have not been specified. The individual documents are referred to in brackets by the series and file numbers, e.g. AMS5681/24/5 = AMS5681/24/5. The houses involved include the former Beckley parish workhouse (38), and a Hastings schoolhouse (3). Areas of urban estate development and building in the second half of the nineteenth century - particularly in Eastbourne, Hastings and Brighton - are also shown on plans, attached to the deeds of what was doubtless intended to be estate pub
