THE HUNDRED OF LANGPORT,

WRITTEN in Domesday both Lamport and Lantport, lies the next hundred southward from that of St. Martins Pountney. In the 7th year of Edward I. the king and the archbishop were lords of it; in the 20th year of king Edward III. it was found that there were not any lands within this hundred held by knight's service.

IT CONSTAINS WITHIN ITS BOUNDS THE PARISHES OF
1. HOPE in part, and
2. LID.

And the churches of those parishes, and likewise part of the parishes of OLD ROMNEY, which is in the liberty of the corporation of NEW ROMNEY; and part of the parish of PROMHILL, the church of which is in the county of Sussex. One constable has jurisdiction over it. The whole of it lies within the levels of Romney and Walland Marshes.
