 Way back in the year 1300, 'Wardrobe Accounts' of King Edward I (King of England) include a reference to a game called "Creag" being played at Newenden by Prince Edward, who was aged 15 at the time.

There are suggestions that creag was the beginnings of cricket. Did the British sport of Cricket begin in Newenden?
