Bobbing is a village and civil parish in the Swale district of Kent, England, about a mile north-west of Sittingbourne, and forming part of its urban area. According to the 2001 census the parish had a population of 1,694.
The parish of Bobbing, according to Edward Hasted in 1800, contains about seven hundred and eighty acres of land, of which forty were wood.
The mediaeval manor house of Bobbing Court, now a Grade II listed ruin, was built by the Savage family; it passed to the distinguished soldier Sir Conyers Clifford, and then by marriage into the St. Leger family.
The strange career of Titus Oates, inventor of the Popish Plot, included a brief period as Vicar of Bobbing. He was presented with the living by the local squire, Sir George Moore ( who had recently purchased Bobbing Court) in 1673, but his drunkenness and blasphemy so horrified his parishioners that they ejected him before the end of the year.
