My 3rd great grandfather, Samuel Cant was born in Brightlingsea in 1810, son of George Cant and Hannah (maiden name unknown). Samuel was married to Anne Williams from Portsea, Hampshire and their daughter, Ermina, married Benjamin Howe, also born in Brightlingsea.
George was born around 1777 and died 1830 in Brightlingsea. Hannah was born around 1782 and died 1831 in St. Osyth's, Near Brightlingsea.
If anyone has any links to or information about these people, I should love to hear from you.
