adjoining on the opposite side to the liberty of Rochester. It is called in the survey of Domesday, Laurochesfel, and in some later records, Laverkefeld.

12. WEST MALLING.
But part of AYLESFORD and WEST MALLING are exempt
from the constables of this hundred; the former as being antient
demesne, and the latter as having a constable and separate liberty
of its own. A small part of Aylesford is likewise within the
hundred and liberty of Maidstone. Part of the parishes of HUNTON and HORSMONDEN are likewise within this hundred
