red mail Wills family -James Francis 1815
Looking for precise marriage date for James FRANCIS and Amy WILLS in 1815 in Hernehill. I have a christening date for Amy of 30 oct, 1796 -would love a birth date if possible. Her parents William WILLS & Elizabeth X (love to know) seem to have had about 9 dtrs after 1786 and so I'm guessing a marriage date for them of about 1785. Were they born in the area?? Love to know anything about this family. Thank-you
red mail John W and Frances Millington
I am trying to trace the background of my grandparents John and Frances who were married in London in 1902 but their first child John Godfrey was born in Herne Common 21/03/1905.I am wondering if Frances (who was adopted but surname Williams before marriage) came from Herne as I have found a James and Susan Williams living in Herne who maybe adopted Frances? Any suggestions ?
red mail Maytom of Herne
Searching for any information on the Maytom family of Herne, or surrounding areas. My link is with Thomas Maytom who was transported to NSW in 1826, together with his brother John and also Henry Vandepeer (for stealing & receiving a sheep belonging to T. Harris) would appreciate any information at all. Jenny
red mail Lucas
The Lucas family came from Herne or Herne Bay and moved to Canterbury. George Hoare married Harriet Lucas.
I have recently found that my paternal great grandfather was named Job Frederick Biggs. He was born in 1854 in Bristol and was a Commercial Traveller in Drapery.He did not marry my great grandmother although she and their 2 children used his name from mid 1890's. On 14.4.1890 Job married Sarah Jane David, a 34 year old spinster at the Parish Church at Herne, Kent. Her father was Thomas David,a Copper Refiner, and Sarah Jane had been born in Swansea. Both Bride and Grooms residences were given as Herne. Job gave his profession as Draper. By 1891 they were back in the West Country, living in Leckhampton, near Cirencester. What intrigues me is how he came to be in Kent describing himself as a Draper. Did he, at some time between 1881 and 1891 actually live in Herne, or have his own business there, or was Herne, by then, the home of the David family?

I am descended from Robert Larkin who was born in Herne in 1793 and moved to London as a young man. His parents were Thomas Larkin and Anne Holness, married in Herne in 1785.
