Hi all. Is anyone able to check for a christening for Susan [or Susanna] Ottaway [or variation] in the Boughton Aluph area between about 1590 and 1605?

Susan married John Rolf/Rolfe in Boughton Aluph in 1624. Their first child [that I know of] was born in 1627 and the last in 1637/38. There may have been other children between 1624 and 1627.

John's surname has also been spelt Roff or Roffe on occasions.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Is anyone able to check the parish registers [or BTs] of Hail-Weston for the following marriages:

Richard Banks and Elizabeth - between 1630 and 1650

William Banks  - between 1655 and 1679 [he had a son born in 1675 and a son in 1676 but no mother is named so I am looking for possible candidates].

Richard Banks and Sarah - between 1735 and 1745

Thank in advance

Kent / Chilham Marriage 1597/98
« on: Saturday 12 January 19 18:16 GMT (UK)  »

Is anyone able to check the parish registers or BTs of Chilham for a marriage in February 1597/98.

Isaac Wood and Abigail Fisher were married by Licence on 20 February 1597/98 however the Licence doesn't say where they were married [I've only seen a transcript and not the original though]. Both Isaac and Abigail are described as being "of Chilham" so it seems to be highly possible that they were married there.

If anyone can confirm or refute this it would be brilliant.

Thanks in advance.


PS the marriage is also on the East Kent Marriage Index but no place is given on this.

Is anyone able to check the date of a christening in Molash for me?

I'm after confirmation of the christening date of Sarah Warren who was christened in Molash in November 1671. I believe she was christened in either the 1st of November or 6th of November.

Thanks for any help

Findmy past has the name spelt   " FYLLYP "  on their transcription. ;D

FYLLYP was how I've initially read the name although on another transcription I've also occasionally seen it down as "Filip" and once as "Filep" (although that may have been an error in the transcription).

I've also read something recently which suggests Fyllyp/Phillip was sometimes used as a female name in that period, but I'm not sure where I saw this. I guess it could have been an abbreviation of Fyllyppa too.

I wonder who her mother might have been.

Thanks for the hekp

I've had a look on Ancestry and there is no surname for the wife.
It says
The 2nd day of November were married Robert Joyce and Elizabeth the wife ------------



Many thanks for that. This matches with the notes I have written down, so at least I know I didn't write it down wrong. As far as I can remember the surname "[Joyce]" was sent to me in an email by another researcher a while ago but unfortunately I no longer have the email.

I'll contact the Dorset History Centre to see if they can help in any way.


Kent Lookup Requests / Drawbridge christening in Little Chart
« on: Friday 21 December 18 20:22 GMT (UK)  »

Is anyone able to double check the spelling of a name in a christening in Little Chart for me?

I'm looking to check the spelling of the first name of "Phyllyp" or "Phillis" Drawbrige daughter of Thomas Drawbridge which took place in February 1551.

I've see her name transcribed on various transcriptions as "Phyllyp", "Fillis", and "Phyllys".

She married Christopher Fode in Bishopsbourne in September 1578 and in this case her name is spelt "Phyllis".

Christopher died in 1593 and his widow married James Holloway in 1593/94 in Canterbury. In this case her name is spelt "Phyllp".

She appears to have died in 1600 and was buried in Bilsington as "Phillis Holloway wife of James"

I am trying to work out if she was christened as "Phylllys" or "Fillis" or if "Phyllyp" was a variant of "Philippa"

Many Thanks
