Evington Estate - a list of the estate properties from 1878 and 1909

The land and properties of this once large estate were sold at auction in 1916 by Lord Ashburton, in individual LOTS.

from documents held by The Wood family of Ittinge, Elmsted and the Powell family of Kingsmill Farm, Hastingleigh.
The lists include the names of properties, fields and woods, and the names of the occupiers in 1878 and 1909.

The Evington Estate held lands in
Aldington, Blackmanstone, Bilsington, Bonnington, Burmarsh, Crundale,
Dymchurch, Eastbridge, Elham, Elmsted, Hastingleigh, Hope All Saints, Hurst, Lympne, Newchurch,
Orgarswick,Petham, Sellindge, St. Mary's in Romney Marsh, Stowting, Waltham
and
Wye.
