J C Burfield & Co, Phoenix Brewery, Courthouse Street, Hastings, East Sussex.

Apparently owned by James Breeds in 1810. In 1809, his eldest daughter Elixabeth married Charles Burfield of Hastings; their two children Thomas James Breeds Burfield and Charles Burfield (junior) became partners in the business in 1833. Acquired by Smith & Co.(Lamberhurst) Ltd with about 20 houses in 1908. Herbert Burfield (brewer) died in 1911.

This building on the corner of The Bourne and Post Office Lane, and the adjacent yard, probably mark the rear entrance of Burfield's brewery (and Mills' Eagle brewery?). It is shown in use by Watney South / Phoenix (Brighton) brewery.
