Burmarsh is a village and civil parish in the Shepway District of Kent, England. The village is located three miles (4.8 km) west of Hythe on the Romney Marsh. The Burmarsh Road connects the village to the once fully operating Burmarsh Road train station. The closest major settlement is Folkestone which is a minimum of 9.5 mile car journey.In the 1870s Burmarsh was described by John Marius Wilson as:"...a parish in Romney-Marsh district, Kent; on the coast, adjacent to the Military canal... Acres, 1,796. Real property, £4,612. Pop., 170. Houses, 32."HistoryThe meaning of Burmarsh comes from Old English. Bur comes from "Burh-Ware" which equates to "Town Dwellers, and "Mersc" which means "Marsh". Therefore, if we collaborate these, Burmarsh means "Marsh of Town Dwellers". When Burmarsh was discovered by the Romans around the year 275AD, they extracted salt from the area for use by the empire.Burmarsh appears in the Domesday Book as both Borchemeres and Burwarmaresc. It was one of the very first known settlements on the Romney Marsh. During the reign of King Æthelwulf, around the year 848AD, the King’s grandson, for the sum of four thousand pence, gave the manor of Burmarsh to his friend Wynemund, who gave it to the monastery of St. Augustine. After which it remained part of the possessions of the monastery, eventually being entered in the record of the Domesday book, under the general title of the land of the church of St. Augustine in Littlestone.
