I am trying to find a marriage for my great grandmother Mabel LACEY. She was born in Tenterden, Kent, in 1875 to Thomas LACEY and Martha SHARP. (She had a son, William John LACEY, my grandfather, born in Tenterden in 1894, but I do not know who his father was other than his name was the same as his son, a farmer, deceased by 1920 as stated on the marriage certificate for my grandfather). I believe she married after 1901 as she appears on the 31 Mar 1901 census working in Bromley, Kent and her status is single. I cannot find her on 1911 census so think she may have married by then. I do not have a name for her spouses but family history says she married twice. Any information would be appreciated, maybe she married into your family?
red mail PETTITT, Lamberhurst, Kent, England, (C18).
I'm interested in my somewhat adventurous around the bedrooms of Lamberhurst ancestor Thomas of the family Pettitt. He was the father to my maternal ancestor William J Read, who's interred at Lamberhurst with his wife Elizabeth Carter Sharpe (1780- 5 October 1868). To give you an idea with regard to what Pettitt was like, he was also the father to Elizabeth's half sister, Kezia Sharpe junior who died aged 11 and a half year and now is buried at Lamberhurst with mother also Kezia. PETTITT was also the father to multiple other children (almost all of which were illegitimate children with around 6 seperate Lamberhurst women) who Tommy only supported because the law courts made him support them (other than Kezia, who was voluntarily left money in his will, realised 3 December 1803). I was interested in who this Thomas' parents were and any other living descendants to this most modest guys.

On his marriage certificate and Isaac's birth certificate Charles's occupation is listed as marine store dealer (which by the looks of things may have been a family business at some point as the marriage certificate also states that occupation for his father Charles). Esther's and John's birth certificates state that Charles changed his occupation to general labourer.

red mail Thomas CRUMP born Kent
Thomas Crump is my brickwall. Thomas was born circia 1815, in Kent England. His first marriage, “partiuclars of first marriage unknown” according to his Australian death certificate,. was pre-1850 as this is when he married his second wife on the 30 Dec 1850 in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Selina Wheeler, who was 19 years his junior. Thomas lived in Victoria, Australia for 32 years before he died. It is thought that he may have migrated to Australia on Marquis of Hastings a private ship arriving on the 11 Oct 1841 in Botany Bay, this has yet to be verified. I have not been able to find any record of his first marriage in Australia. He may have been married in England before he came out to Australia. Presumably his first wife died or was deserted when he came out, as it is believed he travelled alone. Thomas was a brickmaker, he lived and worked in and around Melbourne. I would like to locate Thomas Crump’s first wife and children (if there were any), and also details on his christening and his family family of origin. Let me know if there is a connection, I have found the Crump line a very difficult nut to crack. Sandra

red mail Brown in Lewisham
A while ago I was looking for a marriage for a great Aunt Grace Roselda Webb, and a birth for her son Frank in Eygpt. Some nice person sent me the details I needed for both which has opened up the way for my next enquirey. I thank them! I am now looking for some possible living family relations of Thomas Brown c 1851 in Lee, Kent England, he was a carpenter and Joiner. His father was a Frances Brown c1813, Lewisham, Kent and a Butcher. And his mother Sarah c1812 East Ham Essex. Thomas was the younger sibling of Sophia c1845 and Francis c1849 Thomas married Hannah Winn c1856, Deptford, Kent in 1877 in Lewisham. They went on to have at least 10 children. Winifred c1879, Elizabeth 1880, Frances 1882, Sophia 1884, Jeanie 1885, Margaret 1889, Edith 1890, Dorothy 1892, Anne 1899 and Frank Thomas 1900.(There may also be a Joseph?) They were all born in Lewisham Kent. It is the Frank Thomas I am looking for, he married my Grand Mother's sister in 1925 in St Laurence Church, Catford. As he was a Bandsman in the Royal Scots they moved overseas to do a stint in Eygpt, where their son was born in 1927. He was also named Frank Thomas Brown. They moved to Pakistan with his regiment around 1929/1930. Unfortunatly Grace passed away 1931 after a difficult birth and the loss of a baby. My mother Patrica Gascoigne 1929 and her Sister Joyce 1925 met Frank while they were young children. But unfortunalty they lost contact very shortly after the deaths. My own Mum has now passed away, but I would dearly like to make contact with any living relations. I look forward to hearing from anyone who may help in my quest. To you all good luck in your searches, and many thanks for reading my entry.
