THE HUNDRED OF CORNILO
In this hundred was a water, called Gestling, since called the north stream, which running from near Howe-bridge, in Norborne, flowed from thence through the marshes, and entered the sea below Sandwich. In this water, the selons, condemned to death within this hundred, suffered judgment by drowning.
This hundred likewise contained formerly the town and parish of Deal, the parish of. Walmer, and the parish of Ringwold with the hamlet of Kingsdowne; all three long since united to the jurisdiction of the cinque ports, as will be mentioned further hereafter.
