Moreover, no list has ever been published surveying the mayors and sheriffs as a whole. The following list is based on an extensive survey of the borough and palatinate records and of local deeds in Cheshire and Chester Archives and Local Studies i. It is undoubtedly more accurate and more detailed than any other yet assembled. The medieval and early modern mayors have been the focus of considerable interest since the late 19th century.
In Canon Rupert Morris published a list which is still in many ways the most accessible and serviceable of those available. His findings for the period before were refined by W. Fergusson Irvine in lists published in the Cheshire Sheaf in the s. The result has been a series of conflicting lists in great need of coordination and integration. One essential requirement for resolving the conflicts is a full consideration of the evidence, which is often derived from the analysis of deeds and other documents, themselves very difficult to date.
The First Sheriffs The office of sheriff of the city was first recorded in Chester in the s, earlier than in any other English borough. In the 12th century the sheriff was appointed by the earl.

History[ edit ] The Medway area has a long and varied history dominated originally by the city of Rochester and later by the naval and military establishments principally in Chatham and Gillingham. Rochester was established on an Iron Age site by the Romans ,  who called it Durobrivae meaning “stronghold by the bridge” , to control the point where Watling Street now the A2 crossed the River Medway. Rochester later became a walled town and, under later Saxon influence, a mint was established here.
The first cathedral was built by Bishop Justus in and rebuilt under the Normans by Bishop Gundulf , who also built the castle that stands opposite the cathedral. Rochester was also an important point for people travelling the Pilgrims’ Way , which stretches from Winchester to the shrine of Thomas Becket at Canterbury. The Pilgrims’ Way crossed the Medway near Cuxton.

I remember looking over it and admiring the exterior finish and the way that the interior was tastefully trimmed orange dominated — fashionable at the time and it matched the beige of the exterior. It would have been nice to have been able to afford a brand-new boat but my budget would not have stretched to that. So it was back to looking around the boatyards. We were quite friendly with Ken and his wife, Caroline. She baked the most beautiful pies and preserves and sold them to boats going through the lock.
When we were purchasing one of these pies a couple of days later, I enquired about the boat. Knowing of my interest in boats, Ken told me that it was for sale and invited me around to have a look at it. The boat needed some work though. The motor was suspect and I was told that the hull had Osmosis a condition where the gelcoat… the outer layer of the glass-fibre, becomes porous. I was told that this condition could be easily remedied by rubbing down the hull, applying self-etch primer and a topcoat on top of it.
We immediately fell in love with the boat but not the name or the colour.

Rochester was also an important point for people travelling the Pilgrims’ Way , which stretches from Winchester to the shrine of Thomas Becket at Canterbury.
The Pilgrims’ Way crossed the Medway near Cuxton. In Rochester, parts of the Roman city wall are still in evidence, and the city has many fine buildings, such as the Guildhall today a museum , which was built in and is among the finest 17th-century civic buildings in Kent;  the Corn Exchange, built in , originally the Butcher’s Market; the small Tudor house of Watts Charity endowed by Sir Richard Watts to house “six poor travelers” for one night each; Satis House and Old Hall, both visited by Queen Elizabeth I , built in It stands on the Great Lines between Chatham and Gillingham.
The dockyard was closed in , with the loss of eight thousand jobs at the dockyard itself and many more in local supply industries, contributing to a mid s Medway unemployment rate of sixteen percent. The majority of surviving buildings in the Historic Dockyard are Georgian. Other notable sea-faring and naval figures, such as William Adams , were raised on the Medway but apprenticed elsewhere.
The river was further protected by such fortifications as Upnor Castle which, in in varying accounts says it was partly successful in thwarting the Dutch raid on the dockyard , or the commanding officer fled without firing on the Dutch. She never saw active service and has been restored and is as of preserved afloat in Dundee , Scotland.
