Hi,I am Maureen from Maidstone in Kent. I am researching for a friend. I have a James Manser born 1754 and Mary Rootes born 1752 who married in 1776 in Northiam.They are the 4th great grandparents of my friend. I would like to find the parents of Mary Rootes and Thomas Manser. On family tree there is a Mary Rootes and it states that Dedicote (Dedicott/Dedycourt) is her father. I cannot find any evidence of this.There was a Dedicott who was born around 1717 who married Elizabeth Nooks (Noakes) in 1742 but I can only find 3 children by that marriage, Jane, Sivyer and Thomas. Any help would be appreciated. If you live in Ashford we are almost neighbours. Thanks Maureen.
