Canterbury is an ancient and highly respectable city, county of itself (having separate jurisdiction), and the see of an archbishop, who is Primate of all England – locally in the lathe of St Augustine and the hundred of Bridge & Petham, in the eastern division of the county; 56 miles E by S from London; 26 SE by E from Rochester; 16 NW by W from Dover, and the like distance SW from Margate. It situation is one of the most highly favoured by nature in this county; being seated in a fertile vale; environed by gently rising hills from which descend numerous streams of excellent water; and intersected by the river Stour; which dividing and reuniting its stream, forms several islands, one of which anciently called Birmewith, part of the city is built. Canterbury (the Cantwara-byrig of the Saxons) is supposed to have been founded about nine hundred years before the birth of Christ, but the date cannot be satisfactorily particularized. It was one of the earliest Roman stations, and many relics of that nation, comprising articles of pottery, coins, tessellated pavement &c. have at various periods been discovered here. The see of this city was established by St Augustine, the first archbishop, in 599; and he was created metropolitan of all England by Pope Boniface, in 629. The monastery of St Augustine, for many centuries so generally celebrated was founded by Ethelbert, King of Kent, and dedicated to St Peter and St Paul, in 605; it was some time afterwards granted to the Benedictine monks. Subsequently it was greatly enlarged and enriched by considerable endowments; DUGDALE states that at the time of the dissolution of the monasteries by Henry VIII, the revenue of this institution was estimated at the sum of £1413. 4s. 11¾d; this magnificent structure was afterwards demolished, with the exception of the principal entrance, which remains in a good state of preservation and is occupied as a brew house by Mr William BEER. The ancient gate of the city (which has for many years been converted into a prison) stands an admirable monument of the former grandeur of Canterbury; the greater part of the wall is likewise preserved. There are fourteen churches, all of them antique, but destitute of any other claim to description. The cathedral however is decidedly one of the most splendid specimens of ecclesiastical architecture in Great Britain; previous to the reformation it had thirty-seven altars; its middle tower is two hundred and thirty five feet high. Henry VI and the illustrious Black Prince Edward with many other personages of superior distinction are entombed within this venerable pile. Thomas-ά-Becket. The Archbishop and reputed saint was murdered in this sanctuary on 29th December 1173, and his remains were removed to his shrine in 1220. The Wesleyan methodists have a commodious and handsome chapel, and there are places of worship for presbyterians, baptist and the society of friends; the jews also have a synagogue here. The charitable institutions belonging to Canterbury are numerous. The kings school situated in the Precincts is supposed to have been founded by archbishop Theodore about 650; its history however cannot be traced authentically to a more remote period than the reign of Henry VIII, who gave it a charter and established it on its present basis, to consist of fifty scholars; the benefactions in favour of these students are considerable. There is also a blue coat school, connected with the workhouse, formerly the hospital for poor priests and others for gratuitous instruction. Another most valuable charity is the Kent and Canterbury Hospital. There are several almshouses, and various benefits arising from bequests and endowments. The first manufacture for which Canterbury was noted was that of silk, established by the Walloons in the reign of Elizabeth, who granted them the undecraft of the cathedral for that purpose; this manufacture was subsequently prosecuted to a considerable extent, but at present it posses no consequence. For some years back however this city has become celebrated for the production of a superior kind of damask table linen, an article that bids fair to rival in excellence even the ancient silk damask. This place has been long famed for its brawn, which is in high estimation all over the kingdom, but particularly so in London. The other manufacturers are those of parchment and vellum. The trade in long wool is extensive, but that in corn and hops is of paramount importance; the cultivation of the latter article for which the soil here is peculiarly favourable, employs the major part of the labouring class. There are several respectable breweries, some malting establishments and on the banks of the river are numerous mills, some of them of considerable magnitude. Frequent attempt have been made to render the Stour navigable from the sea to this city for vessels of one hundred tons, for which indeed there appears much facility, but the probable benefit does not warrant the expense of the speculation at present. The railway however from hence to Whitstable harbour (whence there is a regular water communication with the metropolis) must eventually prove of great advantage to the trade of this city and vicinity.


At the time of the conquest the government of Canterbury was vested in a prefect, appointed by the King; several succeeding monarchs bestowed upon it charters, or confirmed those of its predecessors; that by which its municipal affairs was regulated, previous to the act passed in 1835, was granted by James I. By the late enactment the corporation is composed of a mayor, six aldermen, eighteen councillors and the usual assistant officers who are styled “the mayor and commonality of the City of Canterbury” the same charter divided the city into three wards and conferred upon it a commission of the peace. The privilege of sending members to Parliament has been exercised by this city ever since the 23rd of Edward I; the sheriff is the returning officer; the present representatives are Lord A CONYNGHAM and J BRADSHAW esq. The return of members for East Kent is made in this city. Quarter sessions are held by mayor, recorder and such aldermen as have served the office of mayor, the day previous to the East Kent sessions; petty sessions the first Thursday in each month; and a court of requests, for the recovery of small debts, is held here before the commissioners every Thursday. The quarter sessions for East Kent are held at St Augustine’s; and all the city business is transacted in the guildhall, a convenient but by no means an elegant fabric, situate in High Street. There are several excellent libraries and reading rooms; a philosophical and literature institution with a comprehensive and well arranged museum; a musical society, assembly rooms and a neat theatre. Four newspapers issue from the press here weekly. Amongst the places of recreation enjoyed by the citizens that of the “Dane John-field” merits particular notice:- at the south east corner of the field, close to the city wall, is thrown up a vast artificial mount or hill, now to all appearance circular. In 1790 alderman James SIMMONDS, to whom Canterbury is indebted for many of its improvements, converted this place into a city mall; the sides of the hill were then cut into serpentine walks, so as to admit an easy ascent to its summit and were connected with a terrace formed upon the rampart within the wall, extending in length upwards of six hundred yards; additional walks were also made in the adjoining field, and a double row of limes planted on the sides of the principal walk. The public spirited conduct of this gentleman is commemorated by a pillar, erected on the summit of the mount. The views from this spot are rich, extensive and interesting. There are daily markets for provisions of all kinds; but the principal one, which is for cattle, corn, hops and seed is held on Saturday and is toll free for corn. The annual fair is numerously attended; it commences on 11th October and continues for about ten days; it is chiefly for pedlery, toys and pleasure. The City of Canterbury, including its several parishes and precincts, contained in 1831, 14463 inhabitants.


Sturry and Fordwich are two small villages and parishes contiguous to each other, both about two miles and a half from Canterbury, on the road to Ramsgate and Margate. The situation of these villages is very pleasing and the scenery by which they are encompassed of a rich and varied character, having many handsome residences scattered throughout the parishes. There are some extensive flour mills here, which constitute the principal business of the inhabitants. The two parish churches are spacious well built structures. Sturry is in the hundred of Bleangate and Fordwich in Downhamford hundred and both parishes are in the lathe of St Augustine. The population of the former amounted in 1831 to 925 persons and the latter contained 287 inhabitants.
