Look on the map and you can see that Sittingbourne is spelt without an e and Faversham is spelt, Feversham, when did the spelling change.

I also noticed the the railway isn't there.

There's more detail on the Cassini 178 map of the Thames Estuary (1:50,000) where the Sheppey component dates from 1/1/1819.  Copyright, so I won't scan it!
