Charles Athelstan came about from the inspiration of the
two Kings. King Charles II (1660-1685) and King Athelstan
(894-939). King Charles II stayed in Faversham during the restoration of the monarchy in 1660, The plaque for this located in Faversham is ‘This House as residence of captain John Trowts (Mayor 1660), “Herein he entertained King Charles II, whose exile at Breda he shared”. King Athelstan was the first king to be crowned King of all England during the period of the Anglo-Saxons (927-939) when he died. King Athelstan held a council meeting at Faversham which led to him having the road, Athelstan Road named after him.
