bearkat -- what amazing sites you have found! Pity no wife or children are shown for the Samuel on the Settlement Examinations.

Well done though - brilliant finds for nellie d.

You have done it again bearkat! I'm going to call you Sherlock.

So the Samuel who committed suicide, very sadly - in 1840 was 70 years old. Birth year therefore c.1770.

A Samuel Denton was born in Chiddingstone on 5th Dec 1770 to a Thomas Denton and Mary.

Another one was baptised 14 Aug 1796 in Sundridge (no birth date shown) - parents John Denton and Mary.

There are no other baptisms recorded in the Kent baptisms, between those years (unless they are mis-transcribed).

A Jane Denton, wife of Samuel Denton, was buried at Sundridge on 28th March 1800 - no age given.

This is likely to be the Jane Hoskins who a Samuel Denton had married on 9th Feb 1797 in Sundridge.

On the face of it - this Samuel is possibly the widower who married the widow Elizabeth Jenkins in Lee, St Margaret in 1811.

Oh nellie -- I hope it proves to be of some use to you - but I think bearkat deserves the gold star for those more obscure discoveries!

Good Luck with it.
