THE HUNDRED OF BOUGHTON UNDER BLEAN.


THE HUNDRED OF BOUGHTON lies next adjoining to that of Faversham eastward. It is written in the book of Domesday Boltone, in the 7th year of king Edward I. Boctune, and soon afterwards Boughton, the archbishop being then lord of it.

There is a court leet held for this hundred, of which the archbishop is lord, at which two constables are chosen, one for the upper, and the other for the Lower Half Hundred, who have jurisdiction over the whole of it.

THIS HUNDRED CONTAINS WITHIN ITS BOUNDS THE PARISHES OF
1. BOUGHTON under Blean.
2. HERNEHILL.
3. GRAVENEY, and
4. SELLING in part.

And the churches of those parishes.
