    Buried 9 May 1796  St. Mary’s Church, Lenham, Kent, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • I did have this as possibly 1809, data from someone else, but having seen the KFHS transcript (CD 25) it is apparent it wasn't that burial as that Richard was aged 45.
      Age was given as 60 for the one who died in 1796 - not quite accurate but close enough that I believe it was most likely this Richard.
    Notes 
    • "widower of Lenham" when marr to ES. Mentioned in his father's will (1771)

      Under "Marriages" and "1724" - "Richard Hunt & Isabella Beacon both of Lenham _ _ } Feb: .5" - I think that the dot that appears before the 5 is all that remains of a '1', which agrees with information I was given regarding the marriage licence.
