Mel Ellis:

Hi Kay,
I'm also researching the Butlers but am later on in time. I'm looking at Florence Annie Butler born 1885/6 and her father who I think is John Butler born 1840 in Benenden. Florence is my great grandmother. Are they part of the same family do you know? Any information you have would be fantastic and greatly appreciated. Thank you,
Mel.

Family History Barnes

19th March 2011

Diane Reynolds:

Hi,
I am currently tracing my maternal family tree and have discovered several ancestors who came from Benenden. The name I am researching is Barnes (my mother's maiden name)and I wondered if there was anyone still living in the village who might be related or could provide me with more information about my ancestors. My 2x gt grandfather was called Thomas Barnes and was born in 1851 in Benenden and his father was Charles Barnes born in 1828 in Benenden(he was a steam engine proprietor and Baptist minister). I think his father might be Henry Barnes born in 1801 in Benenden.I would love to hear from anyone who might be able to tell me anything more about this family. Many thanks for taking the time to read this message.

I would like to get in touch with Mary who was my neighbour in London before the War. I last saw her in 1942 before I joined the RAF, when I was at an agricultural camp with my school in Benenden. I am now living in London, Ontario.
