Jurisdictions

Civil districts

When civil registration of births, marriages and deaths began in 1837, Kent was divided into registration districts, each containing several parishes.  To see a list of districts and the parishes they contain, click here.

Parishes

Historically, the county of Kent consisted of 414 ancient parishes including 16 in the city of Canterbury, 3 in Hoo, 3 in Rochester, 3 in Sandwich, 2 in Deal, 2 in Deptford, and 2 in Dover.  More parishes have been created as populous areas have grown.

Probate Jurisdictions

Before 1858, every town and parish in Kent was under the probate jurisdiction of a primary court and one or more secondary courts.  To see a list of Kent parishes and the pre-1858 courts that had probate jurisdiction over them, go to the Kent Probate Records page.
