I wonder if someone knows if a member of the George family was the landlord of an inn called The Falcon Inn in the Faversham area?
My great-grandfather and his father, Herbert and Walter George, were the landlords of the Red Lion at Badlesmere and Walter's father was the tandlord of the White Lion at Selling.

The only inspiration I can offer is that nearly opposite the Red Lion at Badlesmere Lees is Falcon Farm – an odd name for a farm in these parts, and maybe it was once a pub, or served as such.
Though most people would say it's in Badlesmere because it faces the Lees, it's actually in the adjacent parish of Leaveland.
The house is listed but obscured by trees in Google Street View at http://www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/en-176884-falcon-farmhouse-sheldwich/map?show=streetview
You may know the area, anyway? If you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I can let you have the email addresses of two other George sleuths, though I appreciate one or both may already be known to you.
