The well-looking brick mansion mentioned as of the time of queen Elizabeth, is the parsonage-house, which being leased out, the rector has some rooms in it reserved for his use, when he chuses to reside in it; it is reported to have been built by one of the Colepeper family.

The whole of the property once belonging to the Colepeper family, is now held in trust by Dent and Keysal, for lady Sarah Robert Fane, second child of the earl of Westmoreland, by his wife, the only daughter and heir of Robert Child, esq. who left all his estates to the second child of the earl, by his daughter, provided such child was christened Robert, intending (as he disapproved of the marriage) that his estates, and those of the earl's, should not be consolidated in the same possessor; thus the word, child, instead of son, whether intentionally inserted or not by the framer of the will, entitles lord Westmoreland's second child, although a daughter, but named according to the will, to all Mr. Child's estates, and those in Hollingborne among them.

On the summit of the hill, at the south-east boundaries of this parish, next to Harrietsham, is a small hamlet, consisting of only three houses, belonging to farms of but small rents, which, however insignificant it may seem now, seems antiently to have been of some account, having been thought of sufficient consequence to be entered in the survey of Domesday, under the title of the possessions of Odo, bishop of Baieux, as follows:

Richard holds of the bishop Rongostone, it was taxed at one suling. The arable land is . . . . . There are two villeins, having one carucate, and it paid six shillings in the time of king Edward the Confessor, and afterwards, and now it is worth sorty shillings. Ulviet held it of king Edward.

After the forfeiture of the bishop's estates to the crown, this of Ringlestone came into the possession of the family of Gerund, and afterwards of the Chalfhunt's, (fn. 1) and the Hadde's, of Frinsted, whence a part of it in queen Elizabeth's reign was alienated to Buck, and in king Charles the 1st.'s reign was in the possession of the Finch's, of Kingsdown.

Francis Dodsworth, treasurer of Salisbury, prebendary of York, vicar of Minster, in Thanet, and of Doddington, in this county; and Catherine to the Rev.
