Dover, or Dovor, is one of the cinque ports, a borough corporate and parliamentary, and a market town and eminent sea port, having a separate jurisdiction, in the lathe of St Augustine, eastern division of the county; 71 miles ESE from London, and 16 SE by S from Canterbury. The derivation of its name has not been conclusively ascertained by any etymologist; by the Romans it was designated Dubris, and by the Saxons, Dofra and Dofris, which in Domesday Book are corrupted into Dovere; in all the towns records, ancient and modern. And in all proceeding in its criminal and civil courts, as well as in all deeds, it is invariably written Dovor; and it is conjectured that the latter orthography will in time supersede the present more general mode of spelling the name.  The situation of the town is extremely singular and interesting, being immediately at the foot of stupendous cliffs, with a full view of the sea, and the coast of France. The castle is venerable and admirable pile of building, situated on a lofty summit, and is the grand ornament of the place; the views from the eminence and the contiguous heights, are rich, varied and sublime. In 1216 this fortress was bravely defended against our Gallic   neighbours by Hubert de Burgh, its constable. In the castle is an extraordinary piece of brass ordnance, a present from the States of Holland, cast in Utrecht in 1544; it is twenty four feet long and is commonly called “Queens Elizabeth’s Pocket Piece;” it carries a twelve pound shot, and has some lines on it, which as translated read thus:


“O’er hill and dale I throw my ball

Breaker my name of mound and wall”


In a hyperbolical description of the powerful properties of this gun it is gravely affirmed that, if it be kept clean and loaded well, it will carry its shot to the opposite shore ! The Duke of Wellington is the present governor of the castle. This place was nearly desolated by fire shortly after the Norman conquest; and in 1295 it suffered dreadfully from the hostility of the French. That much importance was formerly attached to this town is evident from the fact of its having been walled and provided with ten gates. At the present day its chief consequence is derived from the proximity of its port to the continent; it is the station for Her Majesty’s packets to France and Ostend; and steam passage vessels are constantly engaged between this place and Calais, Boulogne, Ostend &c.  The South Eastern Railway, now actively progressing, will effect a rapid communication between the metropolis and this port. The foreign trade is not extensive, but the coasting is considerable and many vessels are employed in the fisheries. Upon the River Doure which empties itself into the harbour, are considerable corn mills, one for paper and an oil and seed mill. Within the last ten or twelve years the town has been very much improved and enlarged, by the upwards of one hundred handsome dwelling houses, chiefly fronting the sea, all of which are excellently fitted up and tastefully furnished for visiters. Its celebrity as a bathing place is annually on the increase; and it has besides become a favourite winter residence; indeed it may be considered an exception to the many sea port towns that have suffered from a termination of hostilities. The hotels and inns are numerous and their management such as to impart satisfaction and comfort to the foreigner and general stranger. On the parade are cold and warm shower baths; and the libraries and reading rooms are furnished with the best works, both ancient and modern; those conducted by Mr WARREN, Snargate Street may be resorted to with perfect confidence, as the most extensive as well as the most respectable establishments of the kind.


Dover was first incorporated by Edward I; in 1684 a new charter was granted, which continued in force, until the passing of the existing municipal act, which vested the government in a mayor, six aldermen (or jurats), and eighteen councillors, with the usual corporate officers, under the title of “ the mayor, jurats and commonality of the town and port of Dover;” the same act divided the borough into three wards and conferred upon it a commission of the peace. The general sessions and gaol delivery are held quarterly; a court of requests for the recovery of debts under 40s, the first Tuesday in every month, and debts of any amount can be sued for in the court of record of the mayor and justices, which sits every three weeks. The town returns two members to Parliament; the present representatives are Sir John Rae REID, Bart. and Edward Royd  RICE esq; the mayor is the returning officer.


There are two parish churches those of St Mary and St James, and a new church (or chapel of ease), dedicated to the Holy Trinity; the living of St Mary’s is a perpetual curacy, in the patronage of the parishioners; that of St James is a discharged rectory, in the gift of the Archbishop of Canterbury. There are chapels for general and particular baptists, the society of friends, independents, Wesleyan methodists, Unitarians and Roman Catholics. The charities of Dover are numerous, and the liberality with which they are supported is indicative of the respectable and benevolent character of the inhabitants. The public schools comprise an extensive one, upon the national plan, for boys and girls; a British school, one of industry for girls; and an infant’s school. The dispensary and lying in charity are excellent institutions; there likewise is an almshouse, under the management of the charity trustees, for distressed wives and families of soldiers and seaman; and there are eighteen tenements for decayed freeman and widows of such. The weekly markets are held on Wednesday and Saturday; and an annual fair, which occasionally continues for ten days, commences on the 23rd November. The two parishes of the town and the port of Dover contained, by the returns for 1831, 11924 inhabitants, the population has had a great increase however since that period.


Charlton, Buckland and River are villages in the neighbourhood of Dover, Charlton being contiguous to it, and River the most distant from it. The scenery around these villages is remarkable beautiful. They are parishes and have each their church. Population in 1831; Charlton 1637; Buckland 834; River 560.
