Title: Singular Genealogy
Post by: HERB COLLECTOR on April 13, 2019, 23:29:41
Can anybody confirm this?

Singular Genealogy.

All the persons named in the following genealogy were living at Faversham, in Kent, in 1760, excepting only the former wife of the elder Cashick. Old Harwood had two daughters by his first wife, of which the eldest was married to J. Cashick the son, and the youngest to John Cashick the father. Cashick, the father, had a daughter by his first wife, whom old Harwood married, and by her had a son; therefore Cashick's second wife could say: - "My father is my son. and I am my mother's mother: my sister is my daughter, and I am grandmother to my brother."
     From the North Wales Gazette, 1st August 1811.

You could always have a look at the IGI , I did , there are plenty of Harwoods and a few Cashik ( how it's spelled then ) but it may well be a long journey  . Interesting bit of muddled genealogy though.

I think the surname was Caslock. A  very old Faversham name.

If anyone is looking for some depressing reading, I have extended my post of newspaper articles on explosions and accidents at various Faversham gunpowder works to include the years 1867 to 1904. Look for the red datelines. Another post has a new article of 1789.

It would seem that some part of the KHF is working, as I recently was very pleased to  receive a Happy Birthday ( on my 89th) greeting from Kyn & The Team. I wonder whether I am the oldest? or are there others who can remember Gillingham, etc. prior to & during WW2?

I have a feeling that CDP may be a little older, Dave.

Dave, You are correct, he is 90. Colin ages much better than me, for he is very aux fait with computing.

I too had a birthday greeting for the 26th.  Was very pleasantly surprised!!!   
What a lovely surprise to hear from the Forum and thank you for your wishes.
Came back from Morecombe and the Lakes and stopped off for a birthday afternoon tea at the iconic deco Midland Hotel at Morecombe.
Do hope the Forum continues.

best wishes Ann

     Ann, I don't know what is going on for it wouldn't let me reply, so I'm trying this? Altho' the last communication from Kyn was to say that the Forum is temp. open Dec.18th, it seems to have been extended, altho' very few are using it now- maybe they don't know? Possibly that Birthday greeting to us was an auto cue?  I'm intrigued at your Inn Sign. It looks a little like, but not the same as, the one at Malling in the 50's that was of a saint, hands held up & eyes to the sky, with a circle above around which were a couple of Spitfires or?

Dave,

I think the pub you are referring to is The Startled Saint.

Could this be the Inn sign for the The Angel at Addington?

I assumed it was the old Whitbread sign for the Angel in Strood (corner of North Street and High Street)

It says "The Angel Strood" on the picture, so I reckon that's pretty conclusive!

You have to squint a bit to see it. There's a better picture shown here:

Longpockets. Many thanks, yes that was it, & the link brought it all back. When I was an Apprentice at RAFHalton, a friend, Bill Mercer's dad was the landlord of a pub in Mereworth. The Brewery produced a set of, probably 30? thin metal 2" x 21/2" of pub signs in Kent. Was it Fremlyns? Of course, he had a full set- probably a collectors item now?

Sorry, I should have said " than you smiffy". Dave. And, having read a bit more, maybe Whitbread, not Fremlyns?

Certainly a Whitbread promotion and those tin `fag cards` are quite sought after these days I believe. The only one I still have is of `Boltoph`s Bridge`, West Hythe - must put it on e-bay sometime. From what I recall the series was selective but was it nationwide or confined to the South East?

New item. Fatal Pugilistic Encounter in Kent. March 1872.
