Cinque Ports, or Five Ports, the name of an

members of the body were Hastings, New Romney,
Hythe, Dover, and Sandwich; to these were afterwards
added the “Ancient Towns” of Winchelsea and Rye,
and a great many other places, which, with the title of
Link or Member, held a subordinate position. The
C. P. were constituted to form a defence along the SE.
seaboard of England. In the lack of any regular navy
they furnished, until the reign of Henry VII., nearly
all the ships and seamen requisite for the service of
the State. In return for their services they enjoyed
many important privileges. Their old charter, the oldest
on record, being 99 years older than the first charter of
the city of London, refers to previous documents of
the time of Edward the Confessor and William the
Conqueror. They are under the jurisdiction of a Lord
Warden, who is admiral of the ports and also governor
of Dover Castle. Their old organisation, however, has
been broken up by the Municipal Reform Act, and the
jurisdiction of the Lord Warden has been much modi-
fied and diminished.
