Deal & Walmer

Deal is a market and corporate town, sea port and parish in the lathe of St Augustine and the hundred of Bewesborough – 72 miles E by S from London, 18 SE from Canterbury and 9 from Dover. It is situated immediately opposite to that roadstead so well known to maritime and commercial men by the name of “The Downs” where as many as five hundred vessels at one time have been known to ride at anchor – and ships so circumstanced receive various supplies from the town of Deal. Its inhabitants are chiefly engaged in maritime pursuits – are particularly famous for making boats and in furnishing the most skilful pilots and intrepid boatmen that this island can produce. The boats constructed here are celebrated for the qualities of durability, fast sailing and safety; many of those for whale fishing vessels are made at this place; and some years since several were built for His Excellency Count HEIDEN and Admiral RICKORDS for the use of the Imperial Russian navy. Those sand banks know by the name of “the Goodwin Sands” which have so often proved fatal to shipping, run parallel with the shore of Deal, at about a league distant and present a terrific appearance in stormy weather, but at low water are dry; and many in the summer make excursions to them and traverse the place that has proved the wreck and destruction of many noble vessels. The town is formed principally of three streets which run parallel with the shore from north to south. At the southern extremity stands Deal castle, and at the northern Sandown castle, both majestic structures; the barracks are near the former castle. There are a custom house, a naval store house, and a naval and military hospital – the latter in the parish of Walmer. Many of the houses are irregularly built; those of modern erection, however, are more uniform, and the town has of late years received many improvements. The most prominent of these, is an elegant esplanade, in the formation of which, with the contiguous grounds, upwards of £4000 have been lately expended. The Royal Baths are also a great ornament, they are fitted up in the best taste; and possess every requisite convenience, together with a well furnished library and reading rooms; the baths are situated on the beach, adjoining the Royal Hotel, a very superior establishment; the proprietors of the latter are Messrs BLEADEN & Co of the London Tavern, Bishopsgate Street, London, whose name is a sufficient guarantee for affording accommodation to the most fastidious visiter; while the marine view enjoyed from the premises is beautiful and expansive. A company has been formed, and incorporated by Parliament, for constructing a new pier, which when completed according to the plan, will most efficiently obviate the inconvenience hitherto experienced here in landing and embarking visitants.


William III constituted Deal a free town and borough and granted it a borough corporation; and this charter was in force until the passing of the municipal act in 1835, which vested the government in a mayor, six aldermen (or jurats) and eighteen councillors, with the usual assistant officers, under the title of “the mayor”, jurats and commonalty of the town of Deal, in the county of Kent; the same act divided the borough into two wards, and conferred upon it a commission of the peace. Quarter sessions are held in the court hall for minor offences; a court of requests monthly for the recovery of debts under 40s; a court of record is entitle to be holden by the principal corporate officers, in actions of debt to the amount of £100, but no writs have been issued from the latter court for several years.


The church dedicated to St Leonard situated in upper Deal a mile from the sea, is an edifice neat and convenient; the benefice is a rectory, in the patronage of the Archbishop of Canterbury and the present incumbency of the Rev Charles LANE. In the centre of the town is a chapel of ease, a well built modern erection; and there are chapels for Baptists, independents and Wesleyan Methodists. The principal charities are included in the Royal hospitals, a house of industry, national school and Sunday schools established by the dissenting congregations. Though the country around here is rather flat, yet the views are most delightful – presenting seaward the bold and noble promontories of the North Forelands and the extensive and every varying prospect of the channel, studded as it is in general with numerous sails The market house is well suited for its intended purposes. The market days are Tuesday and Saturday; fairs are held on the 5th April and 12th October, chiefly for pleasure. The parish of Deal contained in 1831, 7281 inhabitants.


One mile south of Deal is the respectable and improving village of Walmer, in the cinque port liberty of Sandwich and the hundred of Cornilo. For some years back there has been a gradual and considerable increase of new buildings in this parish, near the sea; and from the estimation in which this part of the coast is held as a bathing situation, it is probable that it will speedily become a vicinage of fashionable resort; it is noted for the fine prospect over the Downs and the straits of Dover to the French coast. Walmer however is chiefly celebrated for its castle, an ancient fortified structure, which stands close to the sea shore and commands the views above noticed. The fortress was erected by Henry VIII and is the residence of the Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports; the present warden is the Duke of Wellington. The church which has been enlarged within these few years, is dedicated to St Mary; the living is a vicarage in the presentation of the see of Canterbury. Walmer parish by the last returns contained 1779 inhabitants.
