At some point the properties in King Street were re-numbered I was told.

This month the shop has been done up, and they have even reused and repainted the Stigant sign!

In 1878, 26 King Street was let out for 18 per annum.

1883 and 1893 Directories, number 26 was Unoccupied, later bought by John Gough a Bootmaker in 1900 (he was here for the 1901 census)

Thomas William Stigant, late of 68 King Street, Outfitter died 21st May 1912 aged 55. (Source IOT Gazette) he was also here in for the 1911 census.
Married Charlotte Miles in 1897.

In 1891, Thomas was a Hosier and Outfitter of 10-12 Market Place, Margate, so I wonder when he was in situ in this building!

No, Leofwine, the number is 30 not 50, it looks 50 I grant you, I looked again at it today and it is 30.

It looks as though the numbering in the street has changed at some point as that shop is no 26 King St and (if my eyes are not deceiving me) the shop next door is number 50.  I wonder if Stigant shows up in any directories?

Not related directly to the shop, but I like the name too, as Stigant is an Anglo-Saxon name. Archbishop Stigant of Canterbury was famously excommunicated 2 or 3 times, but the English liked him so much as archbishop they just ignored the pope and kept him! (This was apparently one of the factors that led to William being granted his Papal Banner in 1066). Excommunicated by several popes for his pluralism in holding the two sees of Winchester and Canterbury concurrently, he was finally deposed in 1070, and his estates and personal wealth were confiscated by William the Conqueror. Stigant was imprisoned at Winchester, where he died without regaining his liberty.  He is also seen on the Bayeux tapestry.

I saw this old shop in Kings St. Margate and took the photo.
Anyone heard of this shop?
