CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history:

The Kent brewery of Frederick Leney and Sons was bought in the mid-1920s for 270,000. As with the purchase of the Forest Hill brewery this action was primarily designed to secure outlets for the Whitbread brand. Frederick Leney & Sons brought with them 130 pubs of which most were freehold.

When the companies of Jude Hanbury and Mackeson were acquired in 1929, Leney and Sons was merged under the old management of Jude Hanbury. The group were known collectively as the Kent Breweries and were later controlled personally by Whitbread managing director Sydney Nevile.
