Brasted is in Hasted's list of areas which were separate jurisdictions from all hundreds (Hasted, E., 'General history: Divisions of the county', The History and Topographical Survey of the County of Kent: Volume 1 (1797), pp. 250-260; http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=53770, accessed 18th March 2013).

The church stands within the ville." (Idem., Volume 3, pp. 146-57; http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=62848, accessed 13th July 2013.)
