KINGSTON (near Worthing) is a small parish, adjoining and lying between East Preston and Ferring, 4 miles west from Worthing, in the Western division of the county, and Worthing union and county court district. Here was formerly a chapel, which disappeared through the encroachments of the sea. The register remains; the first entry is in A.D. 1570, the last in 1671. The living is a rectory, united with Ferring and East Preston. Here is a Preventive station. The population in 1861 was 45, and the area is 582 acres.
