CINQUE PORTS, THE, first established by the
Confessor, and confirmed by the Conqueror, for
the defence of the coast and the supply of a navy,
were Dover, Sandwich, Romney (these appear in
' Domesdy. '), Hythe, and Hastings, to which
Rye and Winchelsea, with several subordinate
members, were added some being inland, but
those on the coast lying between Birchington
near Margate Kent and Seaford Susx. They are :
for Dover (which supplied 21 ships with 21 hands
each) Folkestone*, Faversham*, St. John's par.
Margate, Birchington, Ringwould ; Sandwich
(5 ships, 6 hands each) Fordwich*, Deal*,

canopy over the sovereign's head; and occa-
