St. Peter, Municipal ward of Westgate

A view through the Westgate of St. Peter's Street c. 1906 - you can just see All Saints Church Tower on the left

Detail from a postcard mailed September 9, 1906, from Folkestone to Miss McKie, 17 Sebright Road, High Barnet, Kent

"The street from hence takes its name from St. Peter's church, situate on the right, about the middle of its length; but before we come to it, is the gateway of the Black or Dominican friars monastery, and opposite, that which leads to the ruins of one of the order of St. Francis. Adjoining to the latter is Cogan's hospital, founded in 1657, by John Cogan, D.D. for six widows of clergyman, who have each an apartment, and 10l. a year; Dr. Aucher, a late prebendary of the cathedral left also a valuable estate towards their maintenance. Beyond St. Peter's church is the passage to two springs of mineral water, of different quality, though rising within seven feet of each other. The waters have been prescribed and taken with success, from the first discovery of them in 1693, but were never so much in fashion as to crowd the town with company. Almost opposite is the church of Holy Cross; in the reign of Richard II. the church was over the Westgate, but it was taken down by archbishop Sudbury, and erected where it now stands. Westgate and its bridge are the boundary of the city jurisdiction; in the broad street without is the prison for the east part of Kent; not far from it the Jews, who reside chiefly in this part of the suburbs, have a Synagogue; and at the end is St. Dunstan's church, a larger and fairer building than most in the city."

3 cases of measles attended to in an epidemic of this disease in St. Peter's Street, Canterbury during 1852 by G. Rigden, Esq. (138 cases total in the city)

15 cases were fatal of the 138 cases seen. Association Medical Journal

The leading case, perhaps, is Fineux v. Hovenden, Cro. Eliz. 664 (1599). The plaintiff there alleged "there had been a way within the city of Canterbury leaving from St. Peter's Street into a street called Rush-market; and that all the inhabitants of the city used, time whereof, &c., to pass that way; and that the plaintiff was an inhabitant there; that the defendant had made a ditch and erected a pole across that way, whereby he had lost his passage, &c." But, after verdict for the plaintiff, it was held by Popham, C. J. Gawdy and J. J. Fenner, "that without a special grief shown by the plaintiff, the action lies not," but it is punishable in the leet. See, also, Anon., Moore 180, No. 321 - The American Law Register 1880

"November 4, 1882, The Christian Life - Canterbury: Death of Mr. Sendell - Our obituary contains the death of a widely respected and worthy man, who for many years has taken a real interest in keeping up our Unitarian services in Canterbury. Our friends can ill spare such a man from their thinned ranks. The Kentish Gazette says, "We regret to have to record the death of Mr. Charles Sendell, a journalist who has represented a Maidstone contemporary in this city for many years past. He was secretary to the Canterbury and District Licensed Vituallers' Association, and he enjoyed the confidence and esteem of the members. For the services he rendered to the Canterbury Horticultural Society - an association now defunct - he was presented with a handsome silver salver. He was a Freemason, and was also the local correspondent of the Times and other London newspapers. Year by year he published "The Canterbury Almanack," a publication which contains a great deal of useful information. He has been in failing health for a long time past, and he has been attended by Mr. Charles Holttum. The news of his death, which occurred on Thursday afternoon, was received with sorrow by his numerous friends. He leaves a widow but no family." *Catherine Sendell, was his wife

February 25, 1893 (WTHBH) Death of Mr. E. Lefevre - On Thursday evening last there passed away from our midst one of our oldest and most respected citizens - the late Mr. Edward Lefevre, of St. Peter's Street. The Lefevres, as their name indicates, are of French origin and came over to this country about the middle of the 16th century during the Huguenot Persecution. Many of the refugees at that time found an asylum in this city, and established amongst the then inhabitants, the useful arts of silk-weaving, lace-making, wool-combing, etc. The family of the Lefevres was connected with the latter and for more than 300 years its representatives have carried on in Canterbury the business of wool-combers and worsted manufacturers. Mr. Edward Lefevre served his apprenticeship under his father Mr. James Lefevre, in the old building known as the Archbishop's Palace. Afterwards he went into Yorkshire where he remained for some time. Coming back to Canterbury he laboured with untiring engergy and zeal at the worsted-making, combing and spinning being then done by hand alone. He also devoted a great deal of time and attention to the dyeing of wool, and managed to produce in the long run "fast dyes" especially in navy blues then in great demand, which his predecessors had hitherto failed to discover. About 27 years ago the retail business in St. Peter's Street was commenced, and year by year it has grown and developed until it is now the largest business of the kind in the South of England. Wools of every description are weekly sent into all parts of Great Britain and Ireland, France, India and the Colonies. Over 100 ladies of title in this country patronize the firm - many of whom have sent letters of condolence to the family.

Dec 1896 - Edward LEFEVRE, Wool Shop, 47, St. Peter's Street. No other address. Still shewing some very cheap fancy articles suitable for presents; also just received a Very Large Consignment of English-made Goods - Bamboo Tables, Stands, Etc., cheapest goods ever offered.

Also an enormous range of Natural Wool and Flannelette Underclothing, including some special lots of Night Dresses much under regular prices.

Cogan's hospital is also in St. Peter's Street on the south side. Mr. Cogan of the city of Canterbury, gave by will, dated July 27, 1657, his mansion house in St. Peter's Canterbury in trust to the mayor and corporation, for the habitation of six poor widows of clergyman of the diocese of Canterbury, and endowed it with the lands of the late archbishop lying in Littlebourn; but these being resumed at the restoration, the house only remained unendowed. This was, however, in 1696, in some measure compensated by the benefaction of Dr. Aucher, a prebendary of the cathedral, who vested an estate in trustees for the payment of ten pounds a year to six clergymen's widows, giving a preference to those in Cogan's house. This house was, some time since, put into substantial repair from private subscriptions. 1825

1473. Cokyn's-lane, in St. Peter's-street, is first letten to a tenant, and has been lately sold. HT


March 2nd, 1803 - At her house in St. Peter's Street, Canterbury, aged 70, Mrs. Celestina Collins, widow. Although possessing an income of 70l. per annum, her habit's of life were singularly disgusting, and her disposition and peculiarities so eccentric, that she may be truly said to have verified the old adage, "de gustibus nil disputandum." During many years, here constant companions were from 16 to 23 fowls, whose ordure defiled as well her bed, and every article of her furniture, as the plate out of which she ate. A favourite cock, whose age might be calculated, from his spurs being three inches long, and an equally favoured rat, were for a length of time constant attendants at her table, each partaking of the fragments which even her penury shared with them; till one day, the rat, not preserving due decorum towards its rival, met his death from the hands of his mistress. Her predeliction for vermin prevailed so much, that at her death, a nest of mice was found in her bed. Among the bequests of her will are, 5l. to the minister of the parish for a funeral sermon, 50l. to the Kent and Canterbury hospital, and the same sum to the parish of St. Peter, and one guinea to each of the persons who should carry her to the grave; besides many other legacies, generally to persons in no degree related to her. AR1803

....The house, in which she resided contained, besides the room in which she constantly lived and slept, two others, that had not been permitted to be opened for many years. Among the bequests in her will, were 50l. to the Kent and Canterbury Hospital; the same sum to the parish of St. Peter; 5l. to the Minister of the parish, for a funeral sermon, and one guinea to each of the persons who should carry her to the grave, besides many other legacies, generally to persons in no degree related to her.
