Kingston

KINGSTON, a parish, in the hundred of Poling, rape of Arundel, W. division of Sussex, 4¼ miles (E. by S.) from Littlehampton; containing 45 inhabitants. The parish is bounded on the south by the English Channel, and has suffered materially from the encroachments of the sea, which are supposed to have destroyed the church. A coast-guard station of a lieutenant and fourteen men has been established, which has a detachment of five men at Goring. The living is a vicarage not in charge, united to that of Ferring: the tithes have been commuted for £92 payable to the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, and £18 to the vicar.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 7th edition, published in 1848.
