100 short stories of Myths, Legends, Ghosts & Mysteries of historic Kent, Just like anyone else born in Kent, we grew up being told stories of the villages where we lived. Many were local legends, like the ghostly highwayman of Oxney Bottom, which spooked generations of children from the village.As well the ghost stories there were fascinating legends like Grey Dolphin. Did Robert de Shurland really kill his horse on the word of a local witch? Was that church in Gravesend really visited by aliens? If you ask the locals you will get ten different versions of the story.With Kent being the eldest county in England it's reasonable to expect a few famous names and events to have links here, yet Kent has an abundance of them.Names and events that when you hear them for the first time leaves you thinking “wow I didn't know that” Did you know about Kent's own “Bermuda Triangle”, what about the Kentish folk who saw battle at Trafalgar or at Rorkes Drift, or even the Titanic passenger from Sittingbourne?Throughout the generations these stories have been told and re-told thousands of times and with each telling the story grows and adapts a little bit more.The stories we have written in this book are the versions, which we have come to know and love. How historically accurate they are could be debated forever, although the basic facts of many of the stories are 100% accurate as our research has found. We leave you to decide, fact or fiction, myth or legend or a mixture of all four.So join us on a journey across history and through the towns and villages immortalised in Kentish folklore and see how many times you say...“Wow I didn't know that”

Shipping disasters of the years 1793-1815 are the topic of this reference work. It covers 15,000 incidents involving both naval and merchant vessels. Each chronologically arranged entry is based on contemporary reports, and gives details of the shipwreck, its location and the number of people lost or saved. As well as major disasters such as the burning of the battleship Boyne at Spithead in 1794 and the loss of dozens of ships in a single storm, the day-to-day accidents of marine life, such as small harbour boats overturning, are included.
