    Jarvist ARNOLD (1815-1896) – the Kingsdown Lifeboatsman
    Jarvist Arnold (1815-1896) was skipper of the lifeboat in the village of Kingsdown on the East Kent coast and became a celebrated hero, due to the lives he and his crew saved from the treacherous seas.
    The Deal Boatmen - Heroes or Villains?
    The Deal Boatmen - Heroes or Villains?
    The Deal Boatmen carried out dangerous and valuable work, salvaging lives and property from shipwrecks in the English Channel. However, property from wrecks was not always lawfully disposed of, and smuggling, although on the decline, continued well into the nineteenth century. Contemporary accounts therefore varied widely in their assessment of…

  • Notes 
    • From 'Popular Royalty' by Arthur H Beavan, published in 1904 (Second Editions):

      'One thing remains unchanged since 1837; and this
      is the unconquerable love of the sea and all pertaining
      to it, that distinguishes our fellow-countrymen from all
      others ; and the heroism that is constantly being called
      forth by contact with the treacherous element. What
      would our national life be in the absence of such men as
      Jarvis Arnold, the coxswain of the Kingsdown lifeboat,
      near Deal, who died last year, and who for twenty years
      had played an active part in the saving of over one
      hundred lives from shipwreck on the Goodwin Sands,
      and who belonged to a family that for three generations
      had been prominent in lifeboat work — a right glorious
      heritage — on that part of the coast?'
