Hi Nancy

Having just read your post I have just looked at the KFHS CD 02/07 and I neither can make up my mind about the listings, as the dates for Faversham, Kent Cemetery Burial Records are all over the place. Perhaps contacting KFHS might help with an explanation to the way burials have been listed/transcribed. They may be unaware of any problems.

Thanks Toni
Yes that is what I have.
I am descended from Thomas son of Thomas & Ann baptised 4/4/1762, Westbourne.
I have only one marriage for Thomas 1762 and that is 28/7/1827 St Mary's, Portsea to Sarah Pratt (she was possibly a widow). I have no idea whether Thomas 1762 was a widower when he married Sarah. So he could have been the one who married Ann Bleach.
I will endevour to check that out tomorrow.

Can anyone please point me in the right direction so that I might find a baptism for THOMAS FLEET of Aldsworth, Westbourne, Sussex.

Approximate year of birth 1836.

He married Ann Raiss 7/2/1756 at St John the Baptist, Westbourne. Register does not state his residence at this time.

Thomas & Ann had 9 children between 1757 and 1785 all baptised at Westbourne.

His occupation was that of Labourer (Ag Lab?)

He died on 20/4/1824 aged 88yrs and was burried at St John the Baptist Westbourne on 25/4/1824.

His grave/headstone stands right beside the entrance to the church (the door that has the wooden porch).

There is a written copy of his headstones inscription in church.

He left a will that he signed on 24/9/1822, which was read 31/8/1824.

Reading this back I sound rather greedy here considering all that I have found on Thomas. But if you do not ask you will never know.

Thank you
