The Royal William

19th September 2011

Rebecca Coleman:


I am attempting to do some research on the Royal William, Camber. According to the 1881 census William and Maria Southerden were living here (these are my great great grandparents) near the station masters house. I can see that there is a place/building existing of this name on old OS maps, but I cannot find it anywhere 'now'. I am led to believe that in 1894 a hotel opened of the same name - could this be the same building? If so - where is it? Was it destroyed in the war? Looking at the old maps the position roughly marries up with a building opposite the golf course - is this it?
