My John V and Sarah Maria Hickmott nee Buss came from Staplehurst and emmigrated to Steuben, Indiana somewhere between 1871 and 1880. He was a minister.
Could be a coincidence but it's a big world out there. May be my John went out there because his predecessors did as yours are earlier than mine. My John was born 1821 ish and married into the Buss family of Staplehurst for generations.
I hope this helps. Let me know if this is useful or if we can compare further notes.
