Dunkirk is a village between Favershammarker and Canterburymarker in Englandmarker.


The origin of the village's name is still not very clear, but it is understood that the name was a result of a house, lived in by a Frenchman from Dunkerquemarker in Francemarker, who named his house 'Dunkirk'.

Dunkirk's main claim to fame is that in 1838 it was the scene of the last armed rising on British soil. See John Nichols Thom.
