The population in 1901 was 73, and it is estimated to be about the same at the present time. The soil is very good for agricultural purposes, and the subsoil is clay. The chief crops are hops and fruit, with a fair number of acres of cereals.
The late Baron Kingsdown (the Right Hon. Thomas Leigh Pemberton, P.C., Q.C.) took his title from this parish on August 28th, 1858. Lord Kingsdown died unmarried on October 7th, 1867, and the title became extinct.
The Parish Church is dedicated to St. Catherine, and is in the Early English style. The present Church is a somewhat imposing edifice, built with Kentish rag and dressing of Bath stone. It was erected on the site of the former Parish Church in 1865 at the expense of the late Lord Kingsdown. Mr. E. W. Pugin was the architect. It has a tower containing two bells and bearing a lofty spire. There are 100 sittings in the Church, and the register dates from the year 1560. The living is a Rectory, with the yearly value of £150 with residence and eighteen acres of glebe. The living, which is in the gift of Sir Edward Leigh Pemberton, of Warwick Square, London, has been held since 1856 by the Rev. Houstoune James Hordern, M.A., of Worcester College, Oxford. Sir E. L.

Teynham is an important industrial and agricultural parish situated three miles east of Sittingbourne and four-and-a-half miles from Faversham. It possesses a station on the SE. & C.R. and is about 43 miles from London. The parish is large, covering all the district between the London-road and the River Swale. It is in the North-East Kent Parliamentary division, the uppcr division of the Lathe of Scray, the Teynham Hundred, the Faversham Union, the Faversham Petty Sessional division, and the Faversham County Court district. The area of the parish is 2,472 acres together with 279 acres of fore-shore, and 115 of water and tidal water. The rateable value is £12,851, and the population at the last census (1901) was 1,839, but this number has been considerably increased since that time, a number of new houses having been built. Near the Swale are large brickworks engaged in the manufacture of the machine-made stock brick. The cement mills at Conyer are now closed. The southern part of the parish is mainly devoted to agriculture, the principal crops being corn and hops with the produce of some famous orchards. Near the Swale is a large tract of land known as the Teynham Level. This is devoted solely to the raising of sheep and cattle. At one time these marshes were not properly drained, and malaria was prevalent in the parish; so much so that Teynham became known as an unhealthy place. Since the draining of the marshes, carried out under the direction of a Coin- mission formed for the purpose (and who have powers to levy a scot) the village has become quite healthy. The principal landowners in the parish are Messrs. R. Mercer (Rodmersham) and R. Lake (Newlands). Lieut.-Colonel Charles John Roper Tyler is Lord of the Manor.
Historically Teynham is a very ancient place, and is mentioned as having been the town in which Archbishops resided in early times. Kenulf, King of Mercia, who reigned between the years 794 and 819, gave the place to Christ Church, Canterbury, and afterwards a palace was built in the village or town as it was known then. Archbishop Baldwin (1184-91), Hubert Walter (1193-1207), Langton (1207-29), and Raynold (1313-28) in turn lived at Teynham. Archbishop Stratford in 1345 entertained King Edward III. at Teynham, and King Henry III. granted the town the right to hold a market and fair. Richard Harrys, a fruiterer to Henry VIII., lived at Teynham, and he planted 105 acres of land with cherries and apples that he had obtained from abroad, and thus the village is one of the earliest in which the cherry was grown in Kent.
The Parish Church, dedicated to St. Mary, is built in the form of a cross, and is of flint in the Early English and Perpendicular styles. The tower contains six bells. There are several handsome stained glass windows. There are also a number of brasses in fair condition in the Church. In 1873 the spacious chancel was restored. The registers date from the year 1538, and the sittings in the Church number 300, of which 200 are free. The living is a Vicarage of the net yearly value of £240, with residence, and is in the gift of the Archdeacon of Canterbury. It has been held since 1878 by the Rev. Edward James Corbould, M.A., of Wadham College, Oxford. The parish is in the Rural Deanery of Ospringe and the Archdeaconry and Diocese of Canterbury.
