Pigots 1840 - Kent

Is a sea port, market town and parish, in the cinque port liberty of Dover, lathe of St Augustine and hundred of Ringslow (or Isle of Thanet) – 72 miles E. from London, 43 E.N.E. from Maidstone, and 16 N.E. from Canterbury; pleasantly situated at the northern extremity of the Isle of Thanet, partly on the acclivity of two hills and partly in the intervening valley. Margate in the middle of the last century, was nothing more than a fishing village of  small importance; but since that period it has been gradually ascending to its present rank, which is that of a populous town and a bathing place of the first celebrity. The waters are limpid, the shore level and the air bland, pure and invigorating. Steam packets were established in 1815; in that year the number of passengers visiting Margate was 23,500; in every succeeding season the number rapidly augmented, and in recent years it has more than quadrupled that of 1815. These vessels ply daily between London and Margate, effecting the passage in about six hours and a half; and in the season two thousand persons frequently land in one day. For this vast influx of visiters the accommodations of the town have annually been found insufficient, and new buildings are consequently in continual progress of erection. The establishments for the convenience of the temporary sojourner, the invalid and the wealthy resident, though numerous and attractive are consequently receiving improvements in elegance and in internal arrangement; and the baths, hotels, libraries reading rooms, assembly rooms, theatre, bazaars, promenades & c. surpass those of most other places on the coast; and the public and private boarding houses, established upon various scales of expense are proportionate in number and respectability. Great difficulty having existed in landing passengers from the steam vessels at low water, in 1824 a wooden pier was constructed, which is carried one thousand and sixty two feet into the sea; it is eighteen feet wide, and has been found perfectly suitable to the purposes of its erection: it is named “Jarvis’s landing-place,” in compliment to Mr. JARVIS, a resident gentleman of Margate, at whose suggession this beneficial improvement was undertaken. The new pier, the plan of the late Mr RENNIE, built of Whitby stone, is nine hundred and one feet long, sixty feet wide in the broadest part, and twenty-six feet high, with a parapet of four feet six inches. The promenade and fashionable evening lounge of the summer visitants, is eight hundred and fifty six feet in length, eighteen feet in width, and elevated seven feet and a half above the level of the pier; it is defended from the sun and rain by canvass awnings; a band of music attends and at night the whole is brilliantly illuminated with gas.


The parish church of St John the Baptist, situated on a hill was built about the year 1050 and was made parochial about 1220. From the great population during the summer months, and the increase of resident inhabitants, the old church was found inadequate to their accommodation, a new one was therefore erected; it was completed in 1829 from a design and under the superintendence of Mr William EDMUNDS; it is a beautiful structure, of Bath stone, in the early English style of architecture. The exterior is ornamented with buttresses and pinnacles; it is one hundred and forty three feet in length, and seventy one in breadth; the tower rises to the height of one hundred and thirty five feet, and from the commanding site on which the edifice is erected, is distinguished at a great distance – indeed it is the first object the eye recognizes on approaching the coast. The interior is composed of a nave, nearly sixty feet high and two side aisles elaborately groined; the windows are embellished with stained glass and it has a fine organ which with communion plate and the velvet draperies are the gift of some highly respectable individuals. The expense of the erection was £28,000; of which sum the commissioners for building churches gave £10,000, the pier joint stock company £2,000, the parish by rate about £8,000 and a similar amount was contributed by voluntary subscription. The church is dedicated to the Holy Trinity and the benefice is a perpetual curacy, in the patronage of the vicar of St Johns. There are places of worship for Baptists, independents, Wesleyan Methodists the society of friends and the Roman catholics. There are several charitable institutions; besides Drapers hospital and the national and charity schools, there is a royal sea bathing infirmary, at Westbrook, founded under the patronage of royalty; some years since it received the addition of a wing, appropriated to the accommodation of female patients; and the entire edifice is a proud testimonial of Thanet liberality. The “Tivoli Gardens” opened a few years ago, adjoin the town in a most delightful situation and are ornamented with fine sheets of water and umbrageous plantations. The remains of “Dandelion” a fortified mansion of a family of that name in the reign of Edward I, stand about a mile and a half to the south west of the town; the gate house flanked with four towers is still in good preservation. In 1820 a new market was constructed; over it is the town hall, a building of the Tuscan order, supported by cast iron pillars; the market is entered by porticos and closed by iron gates; and the whole presents a specimen of neatness and utility. Under a grant obtained from the crown in 1777 markets are held on Wednesday and Saturday. The resident inhabitants of Margate in 1831 was 10,339 – having more than doubled its population within the preceding thirty years.
