Further light is thrown on Dover by an entry in the Jewish Chronicle, on 19 February, 1875:
We earnestly appeal to our brethren on behalf of Dover Synagogue. This synagogue is among the oldest established in the provinces after the return of the Jews. It seems that only four members of the congregation are able to contribute appreciably to the annual funds required to support this synagogue. A debt of £100 burdens this ancient congregation. Surely our numerous and wealthy brethren will not hesitate to subscribe towards the support of a synagogue in the town of Dover - a town admirably suited for the spring and summer visits of our country-going families.
