Gazetteer of the British Isles (Edinburgh: Bartholomew, 1887). John Bartholomew
Tenterden, mun. bor., market town, cinque port liberty, and par., Kent, 6½ miles NW. of Appledore ry. sta. and 10 miles N. of Eye - par., 8471 ac., pop. 3511; bor. and cinque port liberty (limb of the ancient town of Eye), 8948 ac., pop. 3620; P.O., T.O., 2 Banks. Market-day, Friday. The bor. (incorporated by Henry VI.) extends into Ebony par. Tenterden is situated on a height surrounded by hop plantations, and was at one time only 3 miles - now it is 12 miles - from the sea. St Mildred's parish church, with its lofty pinnacled tower - the "Tenterden steeple" proverbially said to have been the cause of the Goodwin Sands - was part of the monastery of St Augustine. The trade is almost purely local.
