Ashford is a market town on the edge of the South Downs in Kent. At the time of the Domesday Book, 1086, Ashford was called Essetesford a name which comes from the Old English æscet which describes the settlement as being at a ford near a cluster of ash trees. In the 13th century Ashford’s economy was based on agriculture, and so, in 1243 it was granted a charter by Henry III allowing it to hold markets where livestock could be sold. Apart from agriculture, archaeological evidence shows that there were potteries in Ashford, at Potter’s Corner, during the 13th and 14th centuries.
