Of Cancia. chap. 35.

CAncia,sent, is a prouince of Eng∣land vpon the British Occean. The chiefe citie thereof is called Eusterbu∣rye, and the land beareth well to me and fruite, and hath many woodes, & moist with welles and riuers, and is noblye endowes with Hauens of the Sea, and rich of riches, and chiefe in wholsomnesse of heauen.

(*As concerning the setting forth of Rent, a prouince worthy of praise, as al∣so Master W. Lambert for his singular penning of the same, with others, in the booke intituled, The Perambulation of Page  221 Kent, is sufficiently set downe the ferti∣litie of the soile, the good disposition of the inhabitants, and their modestie: the one∣lye platforme and beautie of Englande, whose customes and manners are of greatest antiquitie, libertie, and seruice: Kent lieng in ye Southeast region of this realme, hath on the North the riuer of Thamise, now called Temmes, on the East the Sea, on the South the Sea and Sussexe, and on the West Sussexe and Surreye, it extendeth in length from Wicombe in the frontires of Surrey, to Dele, at the sea side .50. miles: And retch∣eth in breadth from Sanhirst (néere Ro∣berts-bridge in the edge of Sussex) to the North point of the Ile of Greane, almost 30. miles, & so hath in circuit .150. miles, or thereabout.
