There is a possible baptism for a John Packman at St Mary Cray in 1777 this is on Ancestry but no image.St Mary Cray parish bordered parts of Eynsford Parish.

Then there is a Non Conformist burial at Eynsford in 1830 also listed on Ancestry and the image states that he was of Crockenhill. Iím fairly certain this is the register of the Baptist church in Crockenhill which has a burial ground.

Please see my posts that I posted late last night.

www.kfhs.org.uk is the website of the Kent Family History Society. They have a map of the Kent parishes. I think you would find it very useful to see the location of the parishes in the area you are interested in.

Dear Gibel
Thanks so much for telling me about KFHS.org.uk website. The parish map is amazing. It looks like so many of my relatives come from a small area around St Mary Cray, Swanley etc.
I've found a link to Genfair where it seems I can order parish records.
Thank you
Best wishes
Louise

Hi Goldie61

 I'm now wary about just copying information from other people's family trees.

Louise

Just to say that you should nurture that wariness and NEVER just copy from other people's trees without verifying the information - this is where so may people go wrong.

Happy hunting,  Pheno

It is also worth checking to see if there is an Online Parish Clerks website, which there is for Kent.

Thanks Biggles50
I actually just emailed the OPC clerk who is going to send me some more information during the week. We might even be related somehow as we both have the Packman and Vallins/Vollins that I'm researching in our family trees.
Best wishes

The Crockenhill Heritage Trail I mentioned in post 5 has a section about the Baptist Burying Ground.
