COSTEN (Susan?) - 1806, Rainham, Kent
« on: Sunday 15 April 12 01:50 BST (UK) »
I am taking another shot at my brick wall and was wondering if anyone knows of a family with the surname of COSTEN living in or around Rainham, Kent in 1806.

Sophia Atwater married George Goodwin on April 21, 1806 in St. Margaret of Antioch, Rainham.  She is transcribed as Hatwater.  Of the two witnesses, one I'm sure worked in the church or was somehow used as a witness often - William Taylor.  The second witness has the surname of COSTEN or at least it looks like that.  The first name may start with an "S".  The image that I have seems to be a better copy of what is on the Cityarc site but I still can't make out the first name.

Grasping at straws, I am wondering if this may be a family member in some way.  I have not been able to find a link back beyond Sophia.

Thank you for reading,

Nancy

I wonder if it is Susan COSTEN.  ???

Familysearch comes up with few COSTEN/CAWSONs in Rainham.

It might be worth investigating the parish records of nearby Upchurch which I don't think have been transcribed anywhere yet.

Hi Bearkat,

Thanks for your reply.  It does look like Susan COSTEN.  Now I have to find a link to Sophia ATWATER or George GOODWIN.

Not sure if this helps but may be worth noting just in case ...........

1851 Rainham
John COSTEN head wid 82 pauper ag lab b.Gillingham
HO107/1627 folio 417 page 3
.............

1841 Rainham
John COSTEN 72 ag lab b.Kent
Susannah 68 b.Kent
HO107/475 book 10 folio 38 page 11
...................

James son of John and Susan CAUSTON bp Rainham 31 May 1801 (born 31 March last)

John son of John and Susannah CAUSTON bp Ham 9 Sep 1804.  I expect this is one of the "Ham" discrepancies on the IGI and could be Hartlip which is near alphabetically.

Frances (same parents) bp 3 Apr 1807 Rainham

Hi Casalguidi,

Thank you for the information.  You may be on the right track with John and Susannah.  I will try to find out what her maiden name is.
