Info on (Kent) required please.
« on: Wednesday 05 November 08 00:38 GMT (UK) »
I Would love someone to point me in the right direction.I am chasing information on the surname "Kent" from the Nottingham area. All i have is Gladys Christine Hooton (b24/01/1886)married Reginald Vernon Kent , son of Mr Kent of Kent and Cooper of Nottingham on the 30th April 1908.My father (Stephen) was born at 156 College Street, Long Eaton on the 27/12/1910. I would dearly love to learn more about my fathers family and its roots.I have a book on grandmothers side (Fletcher house of lace).I'm not having much luck searching, all the sites i seem to look at want $$$. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks all.
Anthony.

10 peverill St
Nottingham
Walter J Kent Head M 31 Pianoforte Tuner Kensington London
Louisa E M wife 24 London
Reginald son 5 Hyson Green nottingham
(wife also entered incorrectly - as Louisa Em -when she was laura E M )

and next door
10 peverill St

(matt Cooper listed as married -but no wife present )

Maybe they were in business together???

Dear Suz, I can't thank you enough for all you have done. I'm finding it a bit hard to absorb at present however having said that i would certainly like to know the best way to follow up on these people. Cant rely on others to do all the hard work you know.
Should I contact the births, marriages and death registry in Nottingham and purchase birth certificate after birth certificate or marriage after marriage.Not sure what would be the best way for me to check all this out. Any suggestions would be a great help.
