News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Thank you Nemo.

I had the Botting link and a one for the Tills family.  There were 13 separate cottages.  The image is a little distant but it does confirm the cottages were still there in 1930.

Need to look again, I guess.

Dear All:

Grateful for help and assistance please!  Searching for a photograph of Vine Cottages, Rainham.  The area is now known as Vineyard Crescent, off Otterham Quay Lane, Rainham close to the Sittingbourne - Rainham railway line.

I know that in 1911, George and Edith Botting lived at number 2 Vine Cottages.  He is listed as a farm labourer.  Their children were:  George, Albert, Percy and Gladys.  Searching for a photograph of the cottages, and I would grateful for any help that takes me in the right direction.

Thank you


Mike
