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.
