Hi, I'm new here, so please be gentle with me  ;)

My grandmother was a Rossiter, from Kent, so I'm researching the Rossiters.

Got a few pointers that might help...................

REBEKAHM28 - I think the village you can't quite read is Ospringe - it's like a suburb of Faversham now.

Richard Rossiter 1757 - I believe he was born in the Sittingbourne/Milton area, but have yet to prove it, and I also think he had a total of 8 children, but again, I've yet to prove the fact convincingly

SPURSBIRD - I think it's more likely to be Hothfield, rather than Charing.  Hothfield Common
always had a gypsy/travellers camp there, and a number of travelling families still live in the village, although in council houses these days. Hothfield is halfway between Ashford and Charing

I'm resident in Ashford, but 'my' Rossiters came mostly from Milton-next-Sittingbourne
