Do you know Lyn L, that had completely passed me by when I typed it!  It was the mention of the Waggon at Hale, that reminded me about my mother's stay in Hale.  :)

As far as the word "Hale" is concerned, I believe that it is an old English word simply meaning "Corner of land".

Thanks for that OS map peterchall.

In 1907 my mother moved from Deal to Hale for a year as her father had a job looking after some colts for a farmer.  She was only three, but remembered the fields and horses, but couldn't pin-point where the cottage was when we took her on a trip round the area when she was alive.  It was nice to see the map, and imagine where it was.  :)

Does anyone know the origin or meaning of 'Hale'?

It is still shown on OS maps. Here is the 1907 and the current map:

peterchall, Thank you, I can imagine its not such a large area and eventually was incorporated into the Luton and Chatham towns.

There's a photo of the pub here:
http://www.kenthistoryforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=13422.msg108682#msg108682

1907 map calls the area in front of the pub 'Hale' and the pub is marked 'Wagon PH' (one'g'). Then 'Darland Brick Works' is just a few yards behind the pub in an area marked 'Darland'. So 'Hale` is a very limited area.

Do you mean the 'Wagon at Hale' pub at Capstone Road in Chatham ME5 7PP?  I only ask as I was not sure if this part of Chatham, past the Luton Town, was called that maybe many moons ago or whether you just meant the Pub area. Great picture though.

Has anyone got photos of the Hale area in Medway, near to Luton?
