I am seeking any information on Henry Grover. The story passed down through the years is that Henry was a pugilist in Maidstone and he died from blows received during a fight. There was supposedly, at some point, a pub in Maidstone that had a mug on the mantle with Henry's name of it. It was said to have a place of distiction on the mantle. He was born c1844, died in 1873, at the age of 29 and was married in 1867 to Mary Matilda Baker Hayes. This union produced a son, William Albert Grover who was born on 19 Dec 1867. I was led to believe that all of the above mentioned events took place in Maidstone. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
