Blean is first mentioned in 786 AD as Blea, a word probably of Celtic origin, meaning ‘rough ground’. The parish was once known as The Royal Forest of Blean and wild boar were hunted here. The church was built on the old Roman Road from Seasalter to Canterbury and the first village sprang up around it. The church is named after two Arab brothers who were doctors and who charged no fees after their conversion to Christianity.
