red mail Andrews/Horton - Wincheap
Desperately trying to find a marriage for Ann Maria Horton (nee Andrews) who appears to have married a Robert Miller between 1855 and 1857. Her first husband George Horton died in 1855. She went on to have a daughter Catherine (b1857 in Deal) - father was a Cpl Robert Miller of 79th Foot Regt. I have a copy Birth Cert but can find no records of their marriage even though she is shown as Miller (nee Andrews) on the Birth Cert. Ann Maria had reverted to the name of Horton by the 1861 Census shown as a widow. All ties in with all other details that I have but this marriage is eluding me. If anybody has any connections at all and could assist I would be very grateful.

Help! I'm trying to find the burial place(s) of JOHN BERKLEY, died autumn 1880 and FRANCES NICHOLAS BERKLEY, his wife, died autumn 1886, both in Canterbury.

Frances was still living in Canterbury in 1881, and as they were relatively poor, I can only assume they weren't buried too far away. I've checked out a few nearby parishes, with no luck. Can anyone help? Berkley is a fairly unusual name for this part of the country. Thanks, Mick

Seeking those researching the CONSTANT families from Canterbury, Kent 1750 onwards. Particularly interested to find descendents of Frederick Constant, born 1866 who married Eliza Margaret M Morgan in 1887. Other connected families are Benjamin Collins born 1848 in Bapchild, Jesse Constant born 1869, married Harriet Rayfield England in 1892, Doris Lilian Constant born 1906, she married Ernest Taylor. All of these people are descendents/relatives of John Constant born 1821 in Blean and Caroline Baker, born 1829.

Am seeking any information on the family of Harry Winter born 1881 as Harry Harrison Eaton in Canterbury. His mother married shortly after to Joseph Winter and Harry must have adopted his surname.

He had married by about 1912 and was shown at 51 Strahan Rd, Bow,London from that date with his wife Emma Alice Winter. Sadly, he was killed in action on 8th October 1918. Any information from descendants, or otherwise,greatly appreciated.
