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.
3. GRAVENEY, and
4. SELLING in part.
And the churches of those parishes.
