red mail Hewetts/ Old Kings Head Erith
I am looking for any information about my grandparents Arthur Hewett and wife Martha Hewett (Jeavons). Arthur had the Old kings Head pub approx 1909-1917. This was later run by his sister Emma and her husband James Holloway and then their son Leslie Holloway. I wondered if Arthur owned the pub because he still has connections to it when his sister Emma is running it. I have an old photo taken in approx 1917 of my grandparents, 5 of their children ( they had 14 in total) and an older man who I believe is Martha's father. I think this is taken outside the pub. Any information or seemingly trivial fact greatly appreciated please as this will help to build a picture of grandparents I didn't know.

My great great grandfather Able Hawkswell married at Stansted church in the district of Malling Kent and it would appear that they were a very close family. They mostly worked in brick making following in the footsteps of their father Henry.

They are commemorated in the Municipal Borough of Erith Section of the Civilian War Dead Register and commemorated in perpetuity by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. The Crown public house, which stood on the opposite corner to The Running Horses, was also hit and was so severely damaged it was never used again and was later demolished. The landlord and his wife, Mr and Mrs Withernden, were killed as were two ladies who died as a result of their injuries. The landlord of the newly completed Running Horses, Mr Zacharia Cole, was killed instantly having been standing at the front door of his pub at the time. Apart from the deaths of Thomas House and his colleagues there were no less than twenty people injured. One of the ARP wardens reported that the victims were still seated at the table and had no visible injuries, they were typical blast victims. The ARP post was located in the former Cannon & Gaze building on the Riverside site and had no refreshment facility. Mrs Cole is understood to have continued to serve drinks out of the back of the pub after her husband was killed.
