"POULTON, a parish in the hundred of Bewsborough, lathe of St. Augustine, county Kent, 3 miles W. of Dover. The parish, which is considerable, is situated among the hills. It contains the ruins of Bradsole Abbey, founded in 1191 by Richard I. for monks of the Præmonstratensian order, the abbots of which were afterwards summoned to parliament as peers. The ruins have of late years been converted into farmhouses. An inscription stone marks the site of the parish church, which has long since been demolished. There is no village, only a few farmhouses."
