A Map Of The Hundreds Of Loningborough And Folkestone : E.Hasted

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A detailed map of the hundreds of Loningborough and Folkestone in Kent that was published in Edward Hasted's "History And Topographical Survey Of The County Of Kent". Towns and villages include Liminge, Elham, Cheriton, Liddon and Alkham, as well as Folkestone. The map depicts roads, woodland, common land and is also decorated with sailing ships in the English Channel. Attractively coloured. Hasted's maps are amongst the most detailed and large scale of the county and were often folded into small format editions of the book. The term `Hundred' dates back to Anglo-Saxon times and Kent's peculiar method of land and social administration. The community was made up of `tithes' (a ten household unit), which was responsible to the `Hundred Court' (normally consisting of ten `tithes'),and `lathes' (into which the Hundreds were grouped), there being five lathes in Kent. The tithes were responsible for the behaviour of their individual members and the lathes responsible for providing the King with food and men when required.
