Kentish Man or Man of Kent?

Close this window to return to hago.org.uk

Our Musical Director, Derek Hasted, was born in Erith.

That makes him a Kentish Man, not a Man of Kent.

What are we talking about?

It's simple - a Kentish Man is born on the West side of the River Medway, and a Man of Kent is born on the East.

Fortunately, Hampshire doesn't seem split down the middle quite so much!
