In recording the history of Smarden Church, and the lives of its Rectors, Francis Haslewood also managed to provide a general history of Kent and England as a whole through the ages. The lives and events witnessed by the Rectors, who had served elsewhere in the country, are particularly fascinating. Excerpts from the records of many other parishes are included to provide background details.
