    Kingston – 7 Quirky Facts

    1. King’s Stone
      A large rock now standing outside All Saint’s Church may have played a part in the coronation of seven Saxon kings in the 10th century, including Edward the Martyr and Edgar the Peaceful, long before Westminster Abbey was built. Aethelred the Unready and Aethelstan (grandson of Alfred the Great) were both buried in Kingston. The town’s name doesn’t relate to the stone but derives from ‘King’s Manor’.
    2. Two Kingdoms
      Originally Kingston lay on the border between the kingdoms of Wessex and Mercia but became part of ‘Englaland’ when King Aethelstan united the kingdoms, driven by his grandfather’s vision of creating one united kingdom of England (‘land of the Anglos’).
    3. In The Market
      The ancient market place dates back to 1170. There are weekly markets, continental markets and a German Christmas market. But, dating back to medieval times the market place had a darker history, it is also where public punishments and executions were carried out.
    4. Fighter Planes
      Kingston has played a major part in British aviation history. In 1912 production began in the town of the Sopwith Camel (a WWI biplane used on the Western Front) by the Sopwith Aviation Company. Eventually it became Hawker Aircraft Ltd that built the Hawker Hurricane in WWII and the Hawker Hunter Jet before the company left Kingston in 1992.
    5. Famous Five
      Enid Blyton was a teacher in Kingston before going on to write her famous books for children. Other famous authors to have lived here include Thomas Hardy, Linda La Plante, John Galsworthy and another children’s author, Jacqueline Wilson, attended school here.
    6. More Famous
      More famous names to have lived in the town include; Tom Holland (actor), Julian Clary (comedian), Debbie McGee (magician), Jon Richardson (comedian), Sir Terence Conran (designer), Jimmy White (snooker player), Stormzy (rapper), Eric Clapton (musician), Mike Batt (musician), David Essex (singer) and Petula Clark (singer). Also Nipper, the dog used on the His Master’s Voice (HMV) logo lived in Kingston.
    7. Cesar Picton
      One of Kingston’s most celebrated sons was Cesar Picton. Picton was enslaved in Africa and ‘sold’ to an English officer before being ‘given’ to a wealthy landowner Sir John Phillipps. After her husband died, Lady Phillipps left Picton £100 pounds which he used to set up a coal merchants using the connection he had made, including the Phillipps daughters. He went on to become a ‘gentleman’ of some standing and despite being caught poaching (punishable by deportation at the time), he received a small fine owing to his influence and position.
