William James Chittenden was proprietor from 1894 to 1899. This fits in well with family history. My grandmother, William’s daughter Gwen was a child there and then visited again later in about 1930 with her son my uncle all now deceased. Gwen was born in 1892 and her son in 1923. The second photo will be Gwen and her older Sister Ally with probably her father. Later in his life William ran the Grasshopper in Westerham where he had Winston Churchill as patron!
