Ellington  Kent


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Ellington like this:

ELLINGTON, a hamlet in St. Lawrence and Ramsgate parishes, Kent; near Ramsgate. Ellington House was the seat of the Thatchers, and passed to the Spracklyns and the Garrets; and, in 1652, in the time of the Spracklyns, was the scene of a horrible domestic tragedy.

The location is that of Ellington Park, as marked on street maps of Ramsgate. Additional information about this locality is available for Ramsgate
