Hi Irret

Whilst looking for something else, I found this 1903 baptism (Samson son of Andrew & Caroline) in the parish registers of Holy Trinity, Milton, Gravesend, Kent ................... just in case you don't have it :)

Solomon Deighton 12, born Tunbridge, Surrey

All listed as Gypsies at Bottom Barn, Court Farm, Rural District of Godstone, Surrey.

Not born in Plumstead but not a million miles away so may be related.

Hi have been concentrating on my fathers side of the family for the last 6 months or so but am just starting an my mothers.
My nans maiden name was Dighton and her father was Lawrence Dighton. Born 1876. He married Kate Carey and the Careys and Lawrence Dighton are on the same census 1901 and they appear to have Plumstead as the place of birth.
Not sure if they are connected but please let me know if you think they may be and i will le you know what i have to date( which isnt much so far)

Nathan Deighton married Reni Smith
Noah married Lidi Smith -she was bapt 7.12.1851 Gosbeck, Sfk.
and Solomon married Patience Smith

Solomon and Patience were reputed to have had the following children:

Celia, Genti, Henry, Nathan and Dorenia.
