Hi and welcome to RootsChat, it's a good idea to tell us what you know about the family that you are researching, such as dates and places of birth, death and marriage if known.

Welcome from me too!

There's a marriage between Henry William Kennard and Mercy Matthews in Clayton in 1883 - could this be them?

Clayton is the next parish along from Hurst (and very beautiful too!).

Yes, Henry & Mercy Kennard were my great grandparents, parents of my grandfather Albert Edward. I would like to find more about Albertís siblings, Maud, Philip, Hilda & Eva.
It would be brilliant if I could find any more descendants, possibly some who are still alive.
