These are the areas in which I am interested. There was a concentration of Mardens at Wateringbury, Kent in the 1700s - 1800s. I feel that I am connected to these but as yet I have been unable to establish a connection. My great grandfather, Charles, was born in West Malling. His father was also named Charles and his mother was Mary. There is a marriage between a Charles and Mary Ann Luxford at East Malling in 1826. Also shown at East Malling are their four daughters, the first being born in 1829. East and West Malling being very adjacent to each other and my great grandfather being born in 1827 I am hoping that perhaps they may have lived at West Malling at first before moving back to East Malling. There was a Charles born in Wateringbury in 1804 and this could tie in with the above marriage at East Malling. As yet I cannot substantiate any of these. I was hoping you may have some information. I know Danny was also interested in this area.
