Harrietsham, county Kent, England

The village of Harrietsham, England, lies nest to Lenham and seven miles southeast of Maidstone. It contains a very ancient church, the earliest part is said to date from 1150. The old font in which doubtless the Hinkley children were baptized still stands. Steden Street, where one of John Hinkley's tenements was, is not a name now known at Harrietsham, but it seems probable that it was in that part of the village where rises Stede Hill, at the foot of which nestles the church, and on the crest of which is Stede Court.
