In 618 the manor of Northbourne was given by Eadbald, King of Kent, to St. Augustine's monastery at Canterbury, after which it came to the crown, and eventually became the property of Sir W. C. James, Bart., of Betshanger. Northbourne Court is the principal residence. On the Downs, near Little Betshanger, are the remains of a camp formed in the reign of Elizabeth to oppose the landing of the Spaniards."
