Hill House Hospital

Robert Sherwin:

I had a sister, Janet Mary Sherwin, who passed away aged 16 on the 26th April 1960 at Hill House Hospital. It was thought she may have been buried at a nearby church but the only one I can find is Playden Church but I have no way of verifying this. Can anyone help?

Family History

31st December 2019

Stephen Sherwood:

My late Father was born and raised in RYE and now as an old man (77) and living in the USA I would love to find out as much as I can about the family. I do remember an uncle (Frank) and I believe there was another brother who also lived in Rye . Other then that I believe my Father once told me many years ago that his Father who died many years before I was born was once the Major?
I would love to hear from any relatives if there are any still around and also find more about my families history. I also believe there was another brother who was killed in WW1 (Percy). That's all I know.
Thank you to anyone who can help me in my quest

Southenden

31st December 2019

Alexandra Smith:

I have just checked the register of graves in St Peter & St Paul Parish Church Peasmarsh and there are three in the north west quadrant - however, the surname is spelt slightly differently: Southerden. Alice died aged 87 in 1969, Elizabeth (no age given) in 1824 and Thomas (no age given) in 1962. I only have access to grave information, there will be much more in the registers - but they will be in date order rather than name : ( Hope this might be of interest. Best wishes with your search.

My grans name was Maud Southenden, she originally came from Peasmarsh. Has anyone any information about her family from around the turn of the 20th century, and before, my dads family have told me that there are smugglers in her history. She married a Charles Revell from the Sittingbourne / Faversham area. Thank you.
