Hastings was granted borough status in 1086. In 1888, it was made a county borough and in 1974 it became a local government district within the county of East Sussex.

Hastings Jewish Community

There have been Jewish residents of Hastings, St Leonards-on-Sea and Bexhill-on-Sea since the early nineteenth century, although for much of the time there was no organised Jewish community.
