I've just had a look online... seems the Hoare Bank is still going...


G007 Report 5 Nov 2013 08:48

I think there was a Lord M of London who had the surname Hoare, and I think it was him who opened a bank in this country, perhaps under a different name now ?


G007 Report 2 Nov 2013 11:13

P.s. I like the surname: Sheepwash, how very unusual! I think Richard Sheepwash was one of the witnesses at the marriage; perhaps a family friend ?

If you get hold of a book called East Kent Parishes by David Wright a good book about all the parishes and a map of the parishes , great for learning which parish is next to who

If you want to progress further back you should join Find my Past a lot of Kent parish records on there now.

Ok Mavis, anything info you have will be interesting, thanks.


Mavis Report 1 Nov 2013 16:13

I have been looking into this for you -- will up date later

have had a problem with elec. Have had to help the family as they had no elec longer than me.



G007 Report 1 Nov 2013 14:35

I'm researching my family link with Kent at the moment... I think Ann Drury born abt 1828 in Molash Kent parents were: William Drury and Elizabeth Eldrige. Anyone else who can help, please do. I know Ann Drury father was William Drury, and her mother's first name was Elizabeth, but was her surname: Eldrige ? Just want to be sure.


G007 Report 28 Oct 2013 08:35

Ok Mavis, yes, very stormy weather!!! But going away soon... :-) Ann Drury born abt 1828 Molash in Kent, her parents were: William Drury and Elizabeth maybe maiden surname: Eldrige, but not sure about her date of birth etc... They seem to have got married 20th Feb 1808.


Mavis Report 27 Oct 2013 16:28

Just spotted your call -- will need to refresh my mind -- may take awhile .

with the weather going to be windy we may lose the elec. here in the S E

so may be an even longer wait - but shall do my best to help - please be patience

need to go back and look at notes



G007 Report 27 Oct 2013 11:56

Hello Mavis, you mentioned Elizabeth Eldrige above she was born abt 1790, who married William Drury. You also mentioned her parents (I think) being James and Sarah. I think Sarah maiden surname was: Hoare. James Eldrige parents may have been: John Eldrige and Sarah Jeffery ? If you can confirm any of this, please get back to me, thanks.


G007 Report 2 Sep 2013 09:18

Ok Reggie, thanks.

Two people were at John Wise and Ann Drury wedding: William Wise and Sarah Wise, they were probably his brother and sister mentioned above.


G007 Report 7 Aug 2013 17:24

I have the marriage C for a John Wise who married an Ann Drury, mentions his father name, he was also called: John Wise. However, can't see his mother's name mentioned anywhere... But think it was: Sarah Theobald. Thinking is ok, but would like to be 100% sure!


G007 Report 29 Jul 2013 11:59

So John Wise born abt 1826 in Kent, who married Ann Drury, parents were: John F. Wise and Sarah Theobald. Hope this is correct.


G007 Report 21 Mar 2013 14:02

Ok thanks Mavis. You have been very helpful!


Mavis Report 21 Mar 2013 09:29

G007 Report 19 Mar 2013 19:21

This is how it goes Mavis: Anne Drury born abt 1828 Molash, parents were: William Drury born abt 1789 ? Wife name Elizabeth perhaps surname: Eldridge ? His parents were: William Drury born about 1762 and Elizabeth Austin. Then it goes to Thomas Drury/Sarah Jacob. Elizabeth Austin parents were: Edward Austin ? And Sarah Kingsland.
