Excerpt: Having got through all the different marshes, let us put them together and sum up their contents, which are as under, viz.: -- ao. r. p. Komney Marsh, Proper . . 24,049 2 0 New Romney Marsh . . 398 0 0 Old bed of the Rother . . 101 0 0 Denge Marsh . . . 2910 2 0 Jury's Gap Marsh . . . 3009 0 0 Walland Marsh . . . 12,848 0 0 Appledore Dowles . . . 500 0 0 Guldeford Level . . . 3244 0 0 Rye Harbour, Embankment Level . 540 1 32 Iden and Play den Marshes . . 150 0 0 Echingham Level . . . 150 0 0 Robertsbridge Level . . 150 0 0 Kent and Sussex Rother Levels . 9146 0 0 Rayton Salts . . . 41 1 17 Tillingham Level . . . 1080 0 0 Rye Borough Marshes . . 74 2 0 Brede Level . . . 2000 0 0 .
