Teynham is a Vicarage in the gift of the Archdeacon of Canterbury. It lies for the most part to the north of the London Road at Greenstreet, the northern side of which is in this Parish. The Railway Station is about 3 miles from Sittingbourne and 4 miles from Faversham. The Church is about a mile north-east from Greenstreet, and a little below the Church is the Village, a small distance northward of which are the marshes, which extend to the Swale, the northern boundary of the Parish. On a small Creek in these marshes is a Quay called Conyers.
Richard Harrys, fruiterer to Henry VIII., in 1533 obtained 105 acres of rich land called the Brennet, and dividing it into 10 parcels, planted it with fruit trees which he obtained from abroad. They consisted of the Kentish cherry, Kentish Pippen, and the golden renate. Population: 1891, 1,683; 1871, 1,695; 1901, 1839.
The Church, dedicated to S. Mary, is built in the form of a cross, and consists of three aisles, a High Chancel, and north and south chancels, having a square tower at the west end in which hang four bells. There are remains of good painted glass in the windows. The south chancel is called "the Frognall chancel," as belonging to that estate. The north is termed "the Hinkley chancel." Registers date from 1538, the year when Oliver Cromwell, Vicar-General, ordered Parish Registers to be kept throughout the kingdom.
