Losenham  Kent


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

LOSENHAM, a place in Newenden parish, Kent; 5½ miles SW of Tenterden. Camden supposed it to be the site of the ancient Anderida; but he is proved, by recent research, to have been mistaken. A Carmelite friary was founded here, in 1241, by the Auchers; and contests with one at Aylesford the claim of having been the first Carmelite friary in England. No remains of it now exist. Losenham passed from the Auchers to the Colepepers.
