Hello all, my first post. I am searching for information on the Cinque Port Pilots. My great great grandfather, Peter Decent (or De Cent) was described on numerous census returns in the 1800's as one. He lived at 84 Limekiln St, Folkstone, which no longer exists, but was swallowed up into the present port. One can see limekilns cut into the chalk cliffs at the back of the port premises. Any help would be much appreciated.
