Jenner / Blackford

4th August 2019

David Blackford:

In my ancesttry research I find that my Grandfather, Luke, John Blackford born 1862 was the illegitimate son of John Jenner and Caroline Blackford - Hense had the surname Blackford.
Do I have any Jenner relatives descended from their LEGITIMATE sons & daughter - William Alfred born 1864, Mark Thomas born 1867 and Florence Javeny born 1876?

There is the Kent County Archives in Maidstone and the Sussex County Archives near Brighton which both hold a large amount of historical records and data. There is a National Archives site that you can search on-line. Some villages also have Historical Societies that can also be helpful.

I am researching my family history and wondered if anyone knows anything about the Evans family that lived in Hawkhurst in the 16 and 1700s. They were amongst other things Clothiers and Overseers.

Many thanks,

Genealogical Resources

20th February 2019

Martha Flemming:

Hello, my husband and I are planning a trip to the area this coming summer and are hoping to spend some time in the Sussex and Kent areas because that is where his family came from prior to emigrating to the US. Are there genealogical societies there or records offices that may have historical records dating to the early 1600s?
