Parish History

The ruined towers of St Mary's Church are the dominant feature in Reculver, see Reculver Wikipedia for a detailed history of the church and its ruin, the loss of the coastal town and the absorption of the civil parish into Herne Bay.

Reculver's parish boundary, remained the same for both ecclesiastical and civil purposes until 1934. Included were Reculver, Hillborough, Bishopstone and Brook (now Brook Farm), though the parish extended west almost to Beltinge, in Herne parish, and to Broomfield in the south-west – where the boundary with Herne parish ran along the centre of the main thoroughfare, now Margate Road – and it was bounded in open country on the south-east and east by the parish of Chislet. In 1934, the civil functions of the parish were merged into the civil parish of Herne Bay.

The replacement church for Reculver was built at Hillborough: St Mary The Virgin Reculver has a parish boundary map at A church near you  and was built in 1813 but was replaced in 1876 and consecrated in 1878.

The Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, Reculver Lane, Canterbury has been designated as a grade C listed building British listed building

Many archives and local history collections in public libraries in England and Wales offer online census searches and also hold microfilm or fiche census returns.

The 1851 census of England and Wales attempted to identify religious places of worship in addition to the household survey census returns.

Prior to the 1911 census the household schedule was destroyed and only the enumerator's schedule survives.

The 1911 census of England and Wales was taken on the night of Sunday 2 April 1911 and in addition to households and institutions such as prisons and workhouses, canal boats merchant ships and naval vessels it attempted to include homeless persons. The schedule was completed by an individual and for the first time both this record and the enumerator's schedule were preserved. Two forms of boycott of the census by women are possible due to frustration at government failure to grant women the universal right to vote in parliamentary and local elections. The schedule either records a protest by failure to complete the form in respect of the women in the household or women are absent due to organisation of groups of women staying away from home for the whole night. Research estimates that several thousand women are not found by census search.
