News: The modern name of Kent is derived from the Brythonic word kantos meaning "rim" or "border", or possibly from a homonymous word kanto "horn, hook"

King James 1, Rochester 1622 ?

Dear All:

Samuel Argyall was knighted on June 26th 1622 by King James 1 at Rochester.  The King then viewed his ships at Chatham and the next day had lunch at Cobham Hall.

Where would the ceremony be held, the Cathedral, or Corn Exchange?

I had thought of Restoration House in Rochester, but this wasn't referred to under this name until after James 1. Reports say, the King viewed his ships that day at Chatham and then had lunch at Cobham Hall.  Grateful for any suggestions.
