Robert Pocock is quite famous in Gravesend, Kent because he was a printer and publisher who introduced Gravesend's first printing press, in 1786, and opened the town's first library at the back of his high-street shop. Now there is pub named for him just across the road from the library. It's a Wetherspoon's but you can't have everything.

Is this of any use?
