I have traced my Woodgate line back from Waldron in Sussex to William born in Pembury, Kent in 1745.

Welcome to Rootschat.

There is an online tree that gives his parents as John Woodgate born 1717 Buxted, Sussex, died 9 November 1788 Buxted, Sussex and Mary Vennall born 26 March 1721  Buxted, Sussex died 21 July 1780  Buxted, Sussex. However they don't quote any sources.

Hi, thank you, it's been a few years since I've been on here. Now my children are older I'm getting back into my family history research.

I was reading an article about the Woodgate family of Penshurst and Stonewall Park, and it says they had descendents in Pembury. Also I have a DNA link with someone on Ancestry who has a Woodgate of Speldhurst in their tree so I wondered if I was connected to that well documented line of Woodgates somehow, but can't find the missing link yet. Would be a change from all the ag labs if so!

Best Wishes

Kirsten

I looked at the above John Woodgate's tree and hus line originates from Brenchley in Kent which is another branch of the Woodgates of Penshurst, so either way it looks like that's my ancestral line.

Many thanks
