8616; P.O., T.O., 2 Banks, 1 newspaper.Market-days, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. Faversham is a very ancient place; its name occurs in 812. In 1147 King Stephen and Queen Maud founded at Faversham a Cluniac abbey, within the walls of which they were buried. Faversham Creek is navigable up to the town for vessels of 200 tons. The imports are timber and coal; the exports are hops and agricultural produce. (For shipping statistics, see Appendix.) Faversham has mfrs. of bricks and cement, and in the vicinity are large powder-mills; but the principal industry is the oyster fishery.
