About this page:

n.b. Only the most recent 150 items in each category are shown, if more than 150 have been added / changed in the past 60 days.

In time this should more accurately show what is genuinely new to this site.

At present the usefulness of this page is reduced at times by the amount of tidying up I am doing - e.g.

if I change place names to a consistent format (county, not showing

England etc.) a person will show on this page the same as if they were

totally new to my tree. Similarly if I change the description, even

slightly, e.g. to correct punctuation, that accompanies a photo, that photo will appear here as new!

The bowl is C14th, though the base is clearly modern.

Used until 1850, when replaced by a Victorian font, and then from 1831, when restored to its place.

This picture probably gives a better impression of what my ancestors in Bishopsbourne in the C18th would have known than would visiting the church today!
View from the East (altar) end towards the tower, c. 1840, with box pews, a 2 or 3 decker pulpit (the one bequeathed by Richard Hooker) and Hooker's memorial. The latter has since been moved due to the installation of an organ.

The Old Font in Kingston Church
The Old Font in Kingston Church
Whether the baptism took place in this font I don't know.
This font probably dates from when there was first a church in Kingston. It was rescued in 1775 from being used as a feeding trough for pigs, but not restored to use as a font in Kingston Church until 1931. I didn't see another font which may have been used after this one was thrown out, the date of which could have provided a clue as to when this was replaced. Some family baptisms may have been sufficiently far back to have been in…

The lane to the Union Workhouse in Bridge
The lane to the Union Workhouse in Bridge
The entrance was tucked away up this lane off the main street in Bridge. Today turned into housing, if it wasn't for the name of the lane you could easily not realise the buildings' past.
