I was amazed that any sort of plans were lodged with the court. I thought that at that time you could do as you pleased, however it could have been:- 1, To do with a loan 2. You might have had to have the local lords permission to build 3. There was some form of tax based on windows- dont know if it was at that time though
In short I have no idea but I can say:- 1. There is a denwood street in the same village- maybe there was a denns wood at one time . 2. The plans lodged were for the house it does not say to BUILD A HOUSE, probably it already exsisted. 3. I can find no births, marriages etc for denwood or dennard in that village. It is within 20 miles of ALdington, bekesbourne etc where there were births etc. 4. Cannot find any other records using similar names except one denwood was fined for supplying someone with alcohol illegally around the same period. Guilty party was from this area and was supplying someone in Minster, Thanet 40 mile away.
5. As to wealth I would say possibly but without finding out a lot more its hard to say.
I have thought about this a lot and I am convinced that the Us entry point for dennards was good old levin and that much of the transcribed records changed the name. I think the KEY is seeing the Skordas records and the Gibbs supplementals for Maryland- together with the originals of the USA court records showing( in trnsription) denwood ot dennard. Is there any way to view these. Also I wonder about Thomas and Luke denwood, sons of Levin did these become dennards.
Its a mystery BUT there are now far too many connections for us to ignore this denwood/dennard thing
