THE HUNDRED OF TENHAM.

HAVING described the whole of the Island of Shepey, and its appendages of Emley and Harty, I return to the main land of the county of Kent, where the next hundred adjoining to that of Milton, eastward, is the hundred of Tenham, which was so called in the 7th year of king Edward I. the archbishop of Canterbury being then lord of it.

THIS HUNDRED CONTAINS WITHIN ITS BOUNDS THE PARISHES OF

1. TENHAM.
2. LINSTED; and
3. DODDINGTON.

And the churches of those parishes, and likewise a small part of the parishes of HEDCORNE, IWADE, and EASTCHURCH, the churches of which are in other hundreds. Two constables have jurisdiction over it.
