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

The National Burial Index for England and Wales has a John Henniker being buried in the churchyard of St Mary's Chatham on 24th October 1685. Could this be one of the Hennikers you are writing about.

Hi Lutonman.  If you're referring to my earlier post, Henniker was left money in 1763, he didn't leave it.  Since he was apparently alive I doubt that he will be in the burial records. :)

There is no record of John Henniker  in the burial register of St. Mary's Chatham for 1803.

I've had a quick look at Kent Archaeological Society's list of Monumental inscriptions for St Mary the Virgin Church, Chatham (http://www.kentarchaeology.org.uk/Research/Libr/MIs/CHAM/00.htm) and for St Mary Burial Ground http://www.kentarchaeology.org.uk/Research/Libr/MIs/CHAWA/01.htm but can't see any Hennikers.  There are none either at Chatham Maidstone Road, but that only opened in 1869 so is too late for John.  The Whiffen Avenue ground "came into use as early as the 1760's" (see the discussion on the KAS page linked above) so this would be the most likely candidate location.  Unfortunately the monuments have been moved and some are very decayed, see the introductory paragraph.  There is reference to a John Henniker in a will of 1763 when £10 is left by bis step-father in law to Martha, his wife.  Could this be your John?  See http://www.kentarchaeology.org.uk/Research/Libr/MIs/CHAM/02.htm.

From the baronetage of England published in 1803 it is stated that John Henniker - '...lies buried in Chatham Church-yard, where is his monument.' My understanding is that the Chatham Church-yard mentioned is that of St Mary's Church on Dock Road, Chatham.

Hi Everyone, I'm a historian from Suffolk and developing a weighty tome about the Henniker family. I'm led to believe that there is a monument to John Henniker in a churchyard in Chatham (not the one in Rochester Cathedral). Does anyone know of such a monument? We hope to visit sometime soon.
