At Rochester on 29th December, 1472 William Lovelesse was cited on a charge of marrying his spiritual sister who appears to have been a woman to whom his mother had stood as godmother.

John Howthorn of Tunbridge was condemned, in 1463, to be whipped three times round the market place and church for marrying Dionysia Thomas, who was the god-daughter of his first wife.

In the year 1366, Queenborough consisted of 6 houses only, hence there is no doubt that Edward III built the church more for the benefit of the inmates of the Castle.
The solution to every problem is a.) time , or  b.) another problem.
