My family has in the past a member called 'Histed Bailey. '. In Wkipedia someone called Samuel Bailey was a member of the Aldington Gang who was transported to Australia. A family member researching the Bailey family has told me that 'Histed' had an ancester who was a member of this 'Gang'. If anyone has any information I'd be glad to hear from them.
red mail John FRANCIS -1744
Looking for the parents of this John who was born/chr on 22 July 1744 in Aldington. He married Sarah THURSTUN on 11 Oct, 1768 in Ruckinge and then died there in 1801 (either 4 Feb or 15 Aug). Don't know whether can confirm which date? I would love to know when and where his wife, Sarah died? Who were John's parents? Supposed to be a John and Catherine (X) FRANCIS. Perhaps they were married in Aldington before 1744. What were their BMD and parents ...Catherine's maiden name. Hoping for help because south of England CF members are incredible!

I would be interested to hear from anyone with knowledge of the ATTWELL family who lived in Rock Cottages, Aldington at the time of the 1891 census. John worked as a labourer aged 42; his wife Elizabeth (nee DAWKINS b1850 in Bishopstone by Salisbury, Wilts) worked as a laundress whilst caring for their children Ada Mary (b c1876), John George Herbert (aka George b c1879), Amy (b 1881) and Ernest James (b 1883). I will happily share information with others researching these lines.

red mail Thomas Cobb (Cobbs)
Thomas Cobb (Cobbs), who was Archbishop Warham's land agent and Elizabeth Barton's employer, is generally believed to have lived at Cobbs Hall in 1525. Elizabeth Barton, who became known as "the holy maid of Kent," entered a convent an was later hanged for treason when she spoke out against King Henry VIII's marriage to Anne Boleyn. Cobbs Hall is somewhat famous for being an example of the early "lobby entry" style of house and is cited in the book "New Houses for Old."On the other hand, Alan Neame, in his scholarly book "The Holy Maid of Kent," published in 1971, claims that "Thomas Cobb did not reside at the Aldington mansion confusingly know as Cobbs Hall, although modern myth would have it so." Neame claims that Thomas Cobb resided at Goldwell House, which is also in Aldington. Both houses are apparently still standing. Can anyone explain how this confusion has arisen? What are the facts? Any assistance in this matter will be greatly appreciated. Hal
