31. Leaving Sandwich, we directed our course to Dover, passing through Eastry, which we have already described, and from thence by Waldershare, at the distance of eleven miles we arrive at the hill whereon stands Dover-castle. From this eminence there is a most delightful view of the town, the sea, the noble valley and the surrounding heights; perhaps, unequalled for their romanticness: at the bottom of the hill we enter the town of Dover.
This town having from the remotest times been a place of note, it may be expected that we shall enter on a full description of its rise, progress, and present condition; but in this particular, we hope we shall be excused; as the limits of our plan forbid such an attempt, as well as the numerous accounts already published, make it quite unnecessary; therefore we shall content ourselves, with barely giving a few obvious particulars.
This place appears to have been known to the antient Britons, by the name of Dour (O.E.) to the Romans, by Dubris, and Saxons, by Doppa. It still is very populous, though despoiled of its walls, and gates, which were ten in number, viz. Biggin or North gate, St. Martins or Monks gate, Common or Cow gate, Adrian’s or Upwall gate, Severns’s gate, Snar-gate, Butcherygate, Fishersgate, St. Helen’s gate and East-brook gate.
It could once boast of seven Churches, but which are now reduced to two, viz. St. Mary’s, and St. James’s; St. Martin’s le Grand, St. John’s, St. Nicholas’, St. Peter’s and St. Martin’s the less, have been many years demolished. St. Martin’s le Grand was in part taken down in 1546; it was collegiate and founded by Wightred king of Kent: it is a noble ruin, particularly the East end, which may be seen over the houses at the West side of the Market place; that stands on the ground which was formerly inclosed for the Churchyard. This foundation was, for twenty two Canons, removed from the College in the Castle, founded by EADBALDUS son of ETHELBERT, which they enjoyed for near four hundred years, until their great abuse of their uncommon privileges caused them to be suppressed by HENRY I. and their revenues given to Christ Church Canterbury. Then William CORBOIL Archbishop of Canterbury, built a new Church, and Monastery for them, without the Town, at the West side; whose remains are now known by the name of the Priory. He designed to have founded it for Regular Canons of St. Augustine; but dying before he could accomplish it, THEOBALD, his successor in the reign of HENRY II filled this Monastery with Benedictine Monks, and the King not only subjected them for ever to the See of Canterbury, but decreed that no other Order but that of St. Bennet should ever be admitted into this House. Valuation at the suppression; Dugdale £170.14s.11½d. Speed £232.15s.5½d.
The Maison Dieu (now the Victualling Office for the Navy) stands about the middle of the North side of Biggin street, and is "venerable even in its fall". It was founded by Hubert de BURGH, EARL of KENT, for the accommodation of Pilgrims and was valued at the dissolution at £159.18s.6½d.
The Knights Templars had a spacious mansion in this Town. And also there was an Hospital for leprous persons, dedicated to St. Bartholomew. Valued at the Suppression at upwards of £180 per annum.
Dover being placed at the extremity of the luxuriant valley above mentioned, is a fine situation for trade; having a good harbour, which is much assisted by the rivulet before described which empties itself into the sea at this place. The Harbour is spacious, though, after the great sums which have been expended on it, it is incapable of receiving ships of more than 500 Tons burden with safety. But it being the station for the Packets between Dover and Calais in time of peace, and Ostend during a French war, caused a great flow of people to this place.
It is one of the principal of the Cinque ports, and, with its dependencies, furnished twenty one ships for the King’s use; and for which service it was exempted from all Taxes, etc.
The town is at present governed by a Mayor, Jurats and Commonalty, and sends two Members to Parliament, as Barons of the Cinque ports.
It is defended by the Castle (of which we shall speak hereafter) Moats bullwark, of seven eighteen pounders, situated under the cliff by the castle; Lord NORTH’s and two other batteries, on the strand, between the castle and the pier, containing together, three large mortars, sixteen thirty two pounders, and twelve eighteen pounders, situated at the South side of the Harbour.
32. Let us now return to the Churches, and St. Mary’s, being the principal of the two that are now left; we will describe that first. It is situated at the North side of the Town and is very spacious. It appears that it was originally built by the prior and convent of St. Martin’s le Grand beforementioned, which then was considered as the Mother Church; and indeed, the Priests of the other churches were not permitted to sing mass until the Priest of St. Martin’s had commenced his chant, of which the others were apprised by the ringing of a bell. The Prior having erected this Church gave it to the inhabitants of the Town, reserving the advowson for Hubert de BURGH, who afterwards conveyed it to the Maison Dieu; but at the Reformation it fell into the hands of the inhabitants with whom it has since remained.
The present Church is undoubtedly very antient, particularly the square tower at the West end of the Nave, which is clearly of Saxon Architecture; within it is now a good clock, which strikes the quarters, and a pleasant ring of eight bells; and it is crowned with a tall spire leaded. The Church consists of a Nave, with tow long low side ailes and a chancel. At the West end of the Nave is a large Organ, and which would add much to the good appearance of the church, if the pipes were gilded.
In the Chancel.
33. On a small white marble slab, at the South side of the Altar, within the rails: Lucy MATSON Dyed in July 1750 Aged 7 Months.

"Heaven, Church and husband were thy thoughts deare obiects..Whilest soule, spirit Body served the to respect them/And shall theise three of Gods greate power the Subiects/Served by Death nowe force the to Neglect them/Nay rather each hath nowe his Certaine Gage/His lease to change for lasting Heritage".
36. On a large brass plate, in the center of a grey marble stone; which has also four smaller ones on it, i.e. one at each corner: In obitu semper colendi patris sui Mri. Tho. ELWOOD omnibus quinq portuu numeribus functi, die 3 Januarii 1604 defuncti hicq sepulti Carmen funebre. Quis neget Elwoodu ut vita sic morte fidelem Quu tribuit vita et morte cuiq suu Qui bonus a caelo devenit spiritus illi Caelo servavit restituitq, bonum Quae bona divino mundane favore receipt Mundo servavit restituitq bona Quodq bonum est etiam terrenu corpus adeptus Terrae servauit restituitq bonum Illu igitur caelo, mundo, terraq sequuntur Prae mia virtutis, gloria, fame, quies. On the plate, at the upper corner at the left side* (*The Engraver of this and the following plate, seems not to have understood the characters he was making, and consequently has rendered the Inscriptions almost unintelligible by interpolating characters foreign to the Greek and Hebrew Languages.The inscriptions are in Greek and Hebrew).
On another, at the lower corner at the left side: Si du lion ou du sanglier la teste/Sille pourtraict d’oiseau poisson ou beste/T’eussent bien peu accroistre le renom/Il ne s’en mangue de plusieurs de ton nom/Tiltres d’honeur donons mais ences letres/On’t trounraplus qu en tiltres des encestres/[On loose slip tucked into page-gathering here] Si du lion ou du sanglieres du teste/Si le pourtraict d oiseau poisson ou beste/T’enssent bien peu accroitre le renom/Il ne s en mangue de plusieurs ton nom/Tiltres d honneur donons mais en ces letters/On t honnra plus qu en titres des encestres. The sense intended to be conveyed, appears nearly as follows: Could thy Renown have been increased, though/but a little, by the Representation of the Boar/or Lions head, or by the Picture of a Bird, a Fish,/ or Beast thy Name should not have wanted/many Titles of honour, but by these Letters/(or Instances of Literature) we honour thee/more than by Ancestral Titles.
On another, at the opposite corner at the bottom: Alist dat dese steen u lichaem hoot verborge/ Myn liefte vader nochtans is u seele/.In Vrije plaetsen sonder alle sorgen/ End vive name vervult die stadt gheieel/ Ja selfe die steen dieu lyff heft verdeekt/ Sal van u spreke, na elck ieeft ghespreckt.

At ye sole Expence of ye above T. UNDERWOOD.
51. Charles CHURCHILL, a celebrated satirical poet, was the son of Mr. Charles Churchill, curate and lecturer of St John’s Westminster, received his education at Westminster school, where his attainments in the learned languages were slow and not extensive; which appear more owing to his want of application, than to his paucity of abilities: which is evidently manifest from the following tale. "Having one day got an exercise to make, and from idleness or inattention having failed to bring it at the time appointed, his master thought proper to chastise him with some severity, and even reproached his stupidity: what the fear of stripes could not effect, the fear of shame soon produced, and he brought his exercise the next day, finished in such a manner, that he received the public thanks of all the masters". Though through his peculiar exertion of his talents, he accomplished the desired end, yet it appears, that he was rejected from Oxford for want of a competent skill in the languages; so that he was obliged to the school again; where he continued till he attained his seventeenth year. At that early age he formed a connextion with, and was married to a deserving young lady; with whom he lived happily, for some considerable length of time.
Being ordained by the late Bishop of London, he was presented with a curacy in Wales of the annual value of £30. Here he settled, with his family, and was much respected by his parishioners; and had he been content in this humble retired situation, he probably would have passed through life comfortably; but engaging in secular concerns, he quickly got intangled in the world, and was forced to leave his peaceful retirement and come to London.
On the death of his father, which happened soon after, he succeeded him at St. John’s, and in some measure to answer his extravagancies which far exceeded his income, he assisted Mrs DENNIS in the education of the ladies at her school, in reading, writing, etc. with much decorum and success. Soon after this time he fell into many difficulties through his indiscretions; and having incurred debts which he was unable to discharge, must probably have ended his career in a prison but for the liberality of a Mr. LLOYD.
CHURCHILL now had recourse to his wit for a subsistence, and became the author of several poetical pieces, which met with no inconsiderable share of applause: he now became the man of pleasure; resigning his clerical function, putting away his wife, and wallowing in drunkenness, incontinency and impiety. In 1764 going on a visit to Mr. WILKES at Boulogne in France he caught a military fever, of which he died, and was buried at Dover.
His works were collected and published soon after his death in two volumes – among them were: 1st. The Rosciad, his first, and probably his best written poem. 2nd. His Apology to the Critical Reviewers. 3rd. The Ghost. 4th. His Prophecy of Famine. 5th. His Gotham. 6th. Independence, and 7th. The Times.
