Chathams history has been inexorably entwined with the Royal Navy since 1547 when King Henry VIII rented a storehouse on Jyllingham Water. Twenty years later the anchorage that had formed there was named Chatham after a nearby village and the gradual process of development there gathered pace. Ceteham is noted in the Domesday Book of 1080 and a Celtic trackway passed through what is known to have been a settlement in the forest, near to the estuary of the River Medway . Ceto is an ancient British word meaning forest and ham a common old English word for settlement or hamlet. The Romans used the route of the Celtic track as the basis for their paved road, later called Walting Street. Parts of this now make up the A2. Various interesting archeological finds in the area include a Roman cemetery. The Saxon manor at Chatham was handed to Earl Godwinson after the Norman Conquest.
By 1570 a mast pond, storehouses and a forge had been built to support the growing maritime presence there. Such was the towns importance by 1580 that Queen Elizabeth chose to entertain foreign dignitaries there. The Tudor queen had previously established Chatham as a Royal Dockyard in 1568. Chathams development as a Royal Dockyard continued at pace and shipbuilding grew rapidly there, as did the wharfage and the growth of the defensive facilities needed to protect it all from various enemies of England. A Dutch raid in 1667 tested the earlier defences and they proved woefully inadequate, despite the construction of Upnor Castle in 1567. From 1756 the increasing threat of powerful invasion forces from the Continent prompted the development of far stauncher defences centred on the peninsular at the bend of the Medway. A string of fortifications included larger facilities such as Fort Amherst.
The dockyard which had been the pillar of Chathams rise was to decline in the late 20th century. Such was the decline that it closed completely in 1984, the loss of the Historic Royal Dockyard was a huge blow to Chatham. Aggressive efforts by local and national government, and the enterprise of local business, helped the region to recover and bounce back vigorously.
