- a noisy assemblage; “all talkers and no hearers, like DOVERCOURT.” At Dovercourt, in Essex, a court is annually held; and as the members principally consist of rude fishermen, the irregularity noticed in the proverbial saying frequently prevails. Bramston in his _Art of Politics_ says:— “Those who would captivate the well-bred throng, Should not too often speak, nor speak too long; Church, nor church matters, ever turn to sport, Nor make St. Stephen’s Chapel DOVER COURT.” This would seem to be more properly applied to a Court of Dover people, a DOVER COURT, not a DOVERCOURT COURT.
