Rolvenden is a village in Kent, with a long history. It was recorded in the Domesday Book in 1086 as Rovindene, but it has been subject to several name changes since then. During the plague years most of the village burned down and the villagers moved away from the village, but later returned to rebuild it. In the twenty years between 1830 and 1850, the population of Rolvenden fell, as many were employed in the agricultural sector and their jobs were being taken over by machinery. The parish authorities offered assisted passages to the colonies for these workers as this was a cheaper option than keeping the unemployed and their families in the parish and supplying them with the wherewithal to survive.

Criteria for Making a Claim for an Injury
Whatever kind of accident you have been injured in there are three important factors which you must be able to prove if you are to be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim. Firstly and most importantly, you have to be able to prove that the accident in which you were injured was no fault of yours. You also need to prove that another person was entirely to blame for the accident (as otherwise there would be no one to make a claim against). You must also have had medical attention and treatment for your injury as you need a medical report to make a claim.
