St. Mildred

...and lastly, in Wincheap there was a Market for Wines: This Market had its Cross also with an House about it called Barnish Cross, standing in the Memory of Man upon a Green before the Street, but there is nothing now remaining of them. There is now a Gallows placed in their room....

Magna Britannia Antigua& Nova 1738

At the end of Stour Street is St. Mildred's church, at the west end of the south isle of which is a fair arch of Roman brick, and in the church yard some visible remains of the Roman wall. Passing through the postern, and turning to the left, we enter Wincheap, where are some almshouses, built by Mr. Harris in 1726, for five poor families. From hence, entering the city again through Wincheap gap, we pass over Chapel yard, the burying place of three parishes in the city, which have no ground belonging to them, down Castle street, and across Watling street to St. Margaret's church in which is an ecclesiastical court.... The Kentish Travellers Companion 1776

...and about half a mile further westward, in Wincheap Street, are Harris's Alms Houses, so called from Mr. Thomas Harris, Hop merchant of Canterbury, who, by his Will, dated in June, 1726, devised his five messuages, or dwellings, there situated, in trust, for the reception of five poor families for ever; and for whose support he bequeathed a farm then rented at 21l per annum.

"March 23. In Wincheap, near Canterbury, in her 64th year, Mrs. Sarah Highmore. She was the second unmarried daughter of Anthony and Anne Maria Highmore, of the same place, both deceased. Her mind was richly endowed with liberal and religious knowledge, she had learnt very early in life to think for herself, and to act upon the purest principles; and in these she was zealously attached to the Established Church; a retired disposition lead her into the pursuits and habits of reflection, without being chargeable with any natural reserve for to those whom she intimately loved, she was always frank and communicative; her literary attainments constituted for her a rich source of pleasurable occupation and relief, during the greater part of a long life, devoted to the affectionate duties attendant upon those most dear to her, whose declining health and years afforded her ample exercise for the sympathies of filial and fraternal love. The benevolence of her mind far outbalanced the limits of her slender fortune; but regularity and prudence enabled her to indulge in the luxury of doing good in the circle of her own neighbourhood; and some of the objects of her bounty have not been forgotten in her Will. This tribute to her merit may be reviewed without fear of controversy; and if she deserved sublunary praise, how grateful to her surviving relatives is the anticipation of her future reward!"

Henry Gibson, landlord of the Maidens Head Pub, c. 1869 age 75, photo courtesy of Mark Lewis

Henry is of Scottish descent.

In about 1858/9 at the age of 63, presumably when no longer so physically able, he took over as publican at the Maidens Head in Wincheap in Canterbury. It seems he remained the publican until 1871 by which time he was about 75. Although this seems hard to believe you have to remember that there were no pensions in those days!

The pub itself is a building dating back to 1446, the 24th year of the reign of Henry the 6th. It first became an inn, or at least the owner Thomas Stokes gained a license to sell ales on the premises, in 1573. The pub itself consists of two timber framed buildings one parallel to the road and one extending backwards. It is possible that the building at the back, which once stood elsewhere was pressed into use here when the building became a pub to serve as a brew house. Later still a malt house was added beyond this. The malt house is shown at it's fullest extent on the 1874 Ordnance Survey 1:500 map.

A special thank you to the Clarke family for this information

1917 Waterworks Resident Engineer - Mr. W. Swinnerton, Wincheap Street

"Canterbury New Waterworks"

The engine and boiler house, coal store, chimney, cooling pond, softening and lime water reservoirs, boundary walls, permanent pumping engines, pumps and boilers, are all so far finished that the permanent pumping engine, pumps, and boilers, have been in use for some weeks past to pump up the sprint water from one of the two bore holes. The quantity of water raised from the bore hole, by the new pumping engine has been at the rate of 1000 gallons per minute, equal to about one million gallons and half per twenty four days.

The normal level of the water in the bore holes is now 9 ft. above the level of the water in the river Stour, at the Silver Hole spring at Wincheap, and, when yielding a supply at the rate of 1,000 gallons per minute, this level in the bore hole is only temporarily lowered about 22 ft., the water at once rising again to the normal level directly the pumping is stopped.

The object of the present pumping is to clear out the soft chalk, &c. from the subterranean fissures that yield the spring water, in order that the water may come up clear and free from chalk in suspension.

On Tuesday, the 18th inst., this reservoir, which is 19 ft 6 in. deep, and capable of holding 350,000 gallons, was quite filled with water to the overflow and on carefully testing, it was found that the reservoir was quite water tight. The water tightness of the 12 in. main pipe is now being tested throughout its whole length.

William HAIGH, tailor *

Kentish Observer Thursday June 18, 1914
Canterburian's death in the States. News was received a few days ago of the death at Brattleboro, in his 80th year, of William Haigh, who was born in Canterbury in 1834. He was one of six children of George and Elizabeth Haigh, and in 1854 he married at Canterbury Miss Mary Ellis, subsequently they lived for a time in Hamilton, Ontario. Later they returned to Canterbury, but again left for the States in 1887, having resided since that time at Brattleboro. The deceased, who was a tailor by trade, had a family of seven children. One of the sons, Percy J. Haigh, who is now a foreman in E. J. Haigh Hildreth and Co's establishment, served his apprenticeship at a local printing office. The late Mr. Haigh was a prominent member of the Baptist Church, and had been a member of the Ancient Order of Foresters since he was 18 years of age. Mrs. Haigh survives him.
