Burmarsh is a village and civil parish in the Shepway District of Kent, England. The village is located three miles (4.8 km) west of Hythe on the Romney Marsh. The Burmarsh Road connects the village to the Burmarsh Road train station.
In the 1870s Burmarsh was described by John Marius Wilson as:
"...a parish in Romney-Marsh district, Kent; on the coast, adjacent to the Military canal... Acres, 1,796. Real property, £4,612. Pop., 170. Houses, 32."
According to the 2011 Census there were 170 males and 160 females living in the parish.
The meaning of Burmarsh comes from Old English. Bur comes from "Burh-Ware" which equates to "Town Dwellers, and "Mersc" which means "Marsh". Therefore if we collaborate these, Burmarsh means "Marsh of Town Dwellers".
