the record on other peoples trees has James bap in Hampshire -- I think a bit to far away


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.

Thank you very much for posting ALL this family information for me Mavis. It's very helpful, and great when you have added info to help with your family research. You have done very well in finding this info, BIG THANKYOU! Have a good weekend! I will go over the info you have given me, and take notes. :-D ;-) <3 <3 <3

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 ?

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 ?

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