De­pend­ing on which side of the Med­way River you were born de­fines if you are a Ken­tish man or a Man of Kent. Ri­valry be­tween the two ti­tles dates back to Wil­liam I’s con­quest of Kent fol­low­ing the Bat­tle of Hast­ings. Al­though opin­ions dif­fer, the gen­eral feel­ing is that if you were born west of the Med­way then you are a Ken­tish Man (or Woman) while those born to its east were Men (or Maids) of Kent.
