Forester's fictional naval hero Horatio Hornblower was born in the village of Worth, according to Hornblower's biographer Cyril Northcote Parkinson, on 4 July 1776. His father was the local physician.According to Parkinson (pg. 17), the name of the small village varied in the 18th Century from Word or Worde to Worth.According to Parkinson (pg. 17) a farm called the Blue Pidgeons was central to the smuggling business at that time.
