Thank you for letting us know!  It is a shame there are no significant remains.

I have been out to this one, most mornings, as I am the owner of the 'kiln end' of the Oast House.

Sadly I can only report that the area shown on the map, and some older OS maps is part of the garden of the Oast House, which was converted in the mid 1980s. There are certainly no surface features, and nothing in the deeds of the property. There is 'something in the field' (possibly the flint remains referred to above) the other side of the railway line (which is approximately where the alternate dot/dash line to the south of the letter 'N' of Nashenden is, but I suspect that is too far away to be the mark on the map shown as chapel - maybe 500 metres or more.

Sorry I cant be of more help!

If you check all the Doomsday records he was granted most of the manors in Kent with only a few exceptions so yes its not unusual to find it in his name :)

From Hasted -


NASHENDEN is a manor in this parish, which lies about three-quarters of a mile south-eastward from Borstall. In the Textus Roffensis it is called Hescenden, and in Domesday, Essedene. This manor was part of those vast possessions, with which William the Conqueror enriched his half-brother Odo, the great bishop of Baieux; accordingly it is thus entered, under the title of that prelate's lands, in the general survey of Domesday:

Rannulf de Columbels holds of the bishop (of Baieux) Essedene. It was taxed at one suling. The arable land is . . . . In demesne there is one carucate, and 19 villeins, with three borderers having three carucates. There are three servants, and 8 acres of meadow. In the time of king Edward the Confessor, it was worth three pounds, when he received it four pounds, now five pounds. Earl Leuuin held it.

It appears by the red book of the exchequer, that this estate in the reign of king Henry II. was held by Thomas de Nessingden, of Daniel de Crevequer, as one knight's fee of the old feoffment. In the reign of king Edward I. this manor was become the property of Jeffry Haspale, whose descendant, John de Aspale, for so the name was then spelt, died possessed of Nashenden in the 31st year of that reign, holding it of the king in capite. After which it appears to have come into the name of Basing, and from thence quickly after into that of Charles. Richard Charles, as appears by the inquisition taken after his death, anno 1 Richard II. died possessed of the manor of Naseden, which he held of the king in capite by knight's service, excepting forty acres of pasture and wood, which he held of the lord Grey, as of his manor of Aylesford; whose nephew, Richard, son of his brother Roger Charles, died possessed of it in the 11th year of that reign, holding it of the king in capite, as of his honor of Peverel and Hagenet, by knight's service. Nicholas Haut afterwards possessed this manor, in right of his wife Alice, who was a descendant of the above-mentioned family. She held it for the term of her life with remainder to James Peckham, who on her death, in the 1st year of king Henry IV. came into the possession of it. He obtained the king's licence two years afterwards, to give and amortize to the wardens of Rochester-bridge, and their successors, this manor, and also one hundred acres of pasture, with their appurtenances in Ellesford, the manor then being worth yearly, and above all reprises 6l. 13s. 4d. per annum. (fn. 28) Since which it has continued part of the possessions of the wardens and commonalty of the said bridge, for the support and repair of it. The present lessees of this manor are Leonard Bartholemew and Phil. Boghurst, esqrs.

An account of the tithes of this manor will be given, with those of Little Delce in this parish. (fn. 29)
There was a chapel at this place, dependent on the parish church of St. Margaret. (fn. 29)

  At around 800ft below the formation at the back of Nashenden Farm, are some flint remains of Nashenden chapel that was built by the Normans at around the same time as Rochester Castle.

Has anyone been out to this one?  Any idea how much is left, there seems to be some remains looking on Google.
