Gravesend is a market town and parish in the lathe of Aylesford and hundred of Toltingtrough – 22 miles E by S from London and about 33 W by N from Canterbury. Graves-ham, was its ancient designation, and it is so written in Domesday book; approved authorities, however, deduce its name from the Saxon term Gerefa or Graef – a greeve implying “the residence of a portrieve,” or limit of his jurisdiction; hence it received the appellation of Graeves-aend, in more modern days refined to the present orthography. The town is agreeably situated on an acclivity rising from the south bank of the Thames and is composed of several streets, none of which are spacious, but the entire well, paved and lighted. Within the last twelve years the town has received considerable improvements; amongst these the most important and prominent are two noble and convenient piers, names the Town pier and the Terrace Pier – erections rendered imperatively necessary from the prodigious influx of visiters, in the summer season, by steam vessels, which keep up an incessant communication between this place and the metropolis. In proportion to the increase of visiters, so have various accommodations been prepared; these are comprised in several excellent inns, numerous lodging houses in pleasant and salubrious situations, baths, assembly and reading rooms, libraries, bazaars and a theatre. The trade of the town, (exclusive of that promoted by the cause already mentioned), principally arises from the supply of the numerous ships which on their passage outward, stop here to take in stores; many smacks are employed in the cod and turbot fishery, and shrimps of superior quality are collected on the adjacent sands in great abundance; there are extensive lime and brick works, ship building yards and roperies; and the garden grounds around produce vegetables for the shipping, and considerable quantities including excellent asparagus for the London markets. The healthfully mild temperature of the situation, the beauty of the scenery on every side, the convenient distance from the metropolis and the facility of communication therewith, tend to bestow a prosperity upon Gravesend, of which other places of more imposing exterior can rarely boast. From Windmill Hill a panoramic scene of surpassing grandeur and loveliness is presented, embracing an unbroken view of the noble Thames winding and sweeping majestically between the shores of Kent and Essex, its bosom rippled and enlivened by countless steamers and other vessels; while over the country is displayed every feature necessary to constitute a rich and diversified landscape, sprinkled with villas and luxuriant woods; this eminence is one of the first attractions to the Gravesend visiter. Immediately opposite on the Essex coast, is Tilbury Fort, where a battery is planted more for show than utility. The inhabitants of Gravesend, with those of the adjoining parish of Milton, were first incorporated by charter of Queen Elizabeth; this was confirmed and extended by Charles I, but was superseded by the late one under the municipal act of 1835, which vested the government in a mayor, six aldermen (or jurats), and eighteen councillors, and styled the corporate body, “ the mayor, jurats and inhabitants of the villages and parishes of Gravesend and Milton, in the County of Kent;” The same act divided the borough into two wards and provided for it a commission of the peace. The corporation holds a court of record, for pleas of debt to any amount, every third Tuesday; and a court of requests, for the recovery of debts not exceeding £5, on the first Friday of every month. The corporation of London, as conservators of the rivers Thames and Medway, hold courts of conservancy twice a year. The towns business is transacted in the town hall, a handsome edifice in High street. Gravesend is one of the polling stations at the election of members to represent West Kent.


The church dedicated to St George, is a neat plain commodious structure, presenting a spacious nave and chancel, and furnished with a good organ; the benefice is a rectory in the archdeaconry and dioceses of Rochester, and in the patronage of the crown and the Bishop of Rochester alternately. There likewise is a chapel of ease; and the independents and Wesleyan methodists have each a place of worship. The charitable bequests for the relief of the poor are numerous; and a free grammar school founded by the corporation in 1703, and re-endowed by a Mr David VARCHELL, has at present about thirty six boys on the foundation. The market days are Wednesday and Saturday; the former is a corn market and the latter is well supplied with every article of domestic consumption. Fairs are held on  4thMay and 24th October, for horses, cloth and various other commodities. The parish of Gravesend contained in 1831, 5097 inhabitants; and the parish of Milton, in which part of the town of Gravesend is situated 4348.


The village and parish of Northfleet are in the same lathe and hundred as Gravesend, the village situate about two miles from that town. It has long been noted for its extensive chalk and lime works, which occupy all the space between the northern extremity of the village and the river Thames. In this place there is large ship building yard and near it is a spacious dock, excavated in the solid chalk. Zoological and botanical gardens, on an extensive scale have lately been opened here. The church dedicated to St Botolph is an ancient pile and one of the largest in the diocess; the living is a peculiar of the see of Canterbury. Fairs are held here on the Tuesday in Easter and Whitsun weeks, chiefly for pleasure. Population of the parish of Northfleet at the last census 2124.
