Thanet is a notional island containing most of East Kent and including Canterbury, Sandwich, Ramsgate, Margate etc.

Not quite accurate!

The Isle of Thanet was once an island, separated from East Kent by the Wantsum - a 2-mile wide strait from Reculver in the north to Richborough in the south (now silted up).  It included Ramsgate, Margate and the surrounding area, but not Sandwich or Canterbury.

Thanet District includes the parishes of Acol, Birchington, Broadstairs and St.Peters, Cliffsend, Manston, Minster, Monkton, and St. Nicholas-at-Wade with Sarre.

For a more detailed explanation, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thanet_(district)

Re: Daisys in the census? UPDATE

Hello everybody

thought you might be interested in the outcome of my George Daisy grave in Ramsgate Cemetery.

Thanet Crem emailed me back with dates for the grave:

George William Daisy was buried on 10th August 1949 aged 59 years old.

So by my calculations he is the one that Bearkat suggested in the 1901 census living with parents William & Caroline and possibly the birth that Devongirl found in thanet in 1891 Dec Q.

Therefore he is the brother of my great grandfather  ;D and a bonified relation

Thank you all for your help.

As a matter of interest to anybody - there was also a small memorial plaque on the grave which read "In memory of George Daisy from the Barrow Boys" - a clue to his life do you think?

Thanks for letting us know the ending jax. 

Barrow Boys could mean their occupation, but that seems a bit obvious.  Perhaps a local club?

Always glad to help a fellow 'Daisy'

Jax.
George "the toffee apple king" Daisy is my gt gt grandfather. Thanet Hawker. Married Smedley daughter of Moses Smedley, son of Emmett and Lee , Ashford Kent. Very brief and maybe marginally wrong from memory but will get you on your way. Most buried with no headstones.
I have info if wanted. Good luck

Jax,
Almost forgot to mention, the first posting on dates for George Daisey, birth, and George Daisy marriage, note different spelling but not unusual originating from "days eye" the old english name for a flower. Both dates shared are my grandad including the register of him being 9 years old with mum.and dad.
