MAIDSTONE and Neighbourhood 1851


Maidstone, the town on the Medway, is a borough, the assize town of Kent, and the capital of West Kent.  It is 34 miles from London by the high road, and 56 by railway, 8 miles south of Rochester and Chatham, 13 east-north-east of Tonbridge, 18 miles south of Seven Oaks, 13½ from Cranbrook, 33½ from Rye, and 17 south-west from Canterbury.  It is on the river Medway, and the road to Hythe, and it is a terminus of the South Eastern Railway.  It is a borough returning two members to Parliament, and the election place for West Kent.  Maidstone gives name to the Hundred and the Union, and is in the lathe of Aylesford.  The town is governed by a mayor, 6 aldermen, and 18 town councillors, and is divided into 6 wards.  It has a separate quarter sessions, and a court of pleas held every alternate Tuesday. 

The parish contains 4,420 acres, assessed to the Land Tax, in 1815, at £37,244, and, in 1842, at £87,781.  The population, in 1801, was returned at 8,027, and, in 1841, at 18,086.  The town carries on a great local traffic, being at the head of the navigation on the Medway, the aggregate tonnage, passing Allington lock, in the year being 120,000 tons, and the tolls £26,000.  There are one large oil mill and several large paper mills, the latter employing 800 hands.  The town is thriving, and has much improved of late years. 

In 1554 the town took part in Sir Thomas Wyatt’s insurrection.  In Queen Elizabeth’s time a number of Flemings settled.  Fairfax took the town by storm in 1648, when it held out against parliamentary forces. 

The parochial church is dedicated to All Saints, and is a large and ancient structure.  The benefice is a rectory, valued P.R. at £770, in the gift of the Archbishop.  Trinity church was built in 1819, at the cost of about £13,000; the living is in the gift of the Archbishop.  St. Stephen’s church is in the hamlet of Tovil, and will accommodate 600 persons.  St Peter’s was formerly a chapel to an ancient hospital, and recently restored and enlarged; it is capable of accommodating 800 persons.  There are nine dissenting places of worship. 

The Free Grammar school enjoys considerable reputation, and is well endowed; it has two exhibitions to University College, Oxford.   The College school was opened in 1846, under the superintendence of the Canterbury Diocesan Board of Education.  There are five Charity schools.  The almshouses accommodate 19 inmates.  The Town Hall is a neat building.  The Vestry Room contains a parochial library.  The County Lunatic Asylum is large, containing 250 persons.  The County Jail is a very capacious and well-constructed edifice, built in 1818, at a cost of £200,000, the front forming a commodious range of rooms where the assizes are held, and has accommodation for 450 prisoners.  The Barracks form a grand cavalry station and school, and contain about 400 men.  The West Kent Infirmary is a small, but useful, institution.  The Corn Exchange is a very commodious structure. 

The Model school is under the superintendence of the Canterbury Diocesan Education Society.  The Blue Coat school was founded in 1711, and provides education for 53 boys and 43 girls.  The Green Coat school is for 12 boys and 12 girls.  Sir Charles Booth’s school is for 35 boys and 35 girls.  The Brown Coat school is for 24 boys and 24 girls who are clothed, and for 200 boys and 100 girls; this is a dissenting establishment. 

The Savings’ Bank receives large deposits.  The palace of Archbishop Courtenay is now in ruins.  A College was founded by the Archbishop of Canterbury in the time of Richard II.  The revenues at the dissolution were £159 7s 10d; ruins still remain.  The Music Hall is near the Cavalry barracks.  There are gasworks and also water works.  The market, which is one of the largest in the county, is held for hops and corn on Thursday, and for general business on Saturdays.  A cattle market is held on the second Tuesday in each month; and annual fairs on the 13th Feb., 12th May, 20th June, and 17th Oct., which latter is the great hop fair.  The neighbourhood of Maidstone is a great hop district, 4,500 acres being planted with hops.  Penenden Heath is the grand place for county meetings, and has been so for centuries.  Part of Maidstone parish is detached, 5 miles south, at Loddington, containing a population of 62.
