Notes on the Courts of the Bishop and Archdeacon of Rochester

These courts had primary jurisdiction over many parishes in the western half of the county of Kent.  See the parish jurisdiction lists for specifics.

In 1846 the diocese of Rochester was reduced in area. Some parishes were transferred to the diocese of Canterbury and others to the diocese of London.
