Well a little late, but my Great Grandfather Richard was born in Heathfield, and moved to Paddock Wood in Kent.  I am still in Kent having settled down from my globetrotting expat days, and researching my family history.

I sure do! My Gt G'father Richard was born in 1836. Married Elizabeth Blunt and moved to Brenchley, nr Paddock Wood (just behind the Poet's where my neighbour Petrus is the chef).  My Grandfather Henry trained at the Blunt butcher shop in Paddock Wood, before opening a shop in Deptford, and then working for South Eastern Railways at London Bridge.  After he retired he took over the Queen's Head put on Queen Street, Brenchley.

Some of the Haffendens of Tenterden moved to Heathfield to look after lands aquired through marriage and inheritance.

Does this tie in to your research?

Hi Ray,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you but have been out celebrating our sons birthday.
Up to now I have not found a connection to my research but that is not to say there is not as the Haffenden name is very large.
Have you found any of your Gt Grandads background on census ie 1841etc? I have found some via Find My Past site but did not want to duplicate any which you already have.

Regards

Kathy
