Hi I dont know if there is any connection at all but i have Pankhursts who were Fruit Brokers, namely Dilmot Pankhurst who was born in or around 1819, in Kent and his step-son Henry Tillman who was also a fruit broker/merchant.
If any one has any information on this side of the family, no matter what, I would totally love to hear from you, so please do not hesitate in getting in touch and we can compare notes!
Dilmot Pankhurst is my Great(x3)Grandfather.
Dilmot married Hannah Estill, children were: Albert Pankhurst Florence Pankhurst Rosina Pankhurst Thomas Pankhurst Harriette Pankhurst Dilnot Pankhurst Walter Pankhurst Catherine Pankhurst Herbert Pankhurst Therese Pankhurst
I think he had a brother called Alexander Pankhurst (c1815)who also had quite a few children
Alexander married Mary surname unknown, children as follows: Mary Pankhurst Charlotte Pankhurst Susannah Pankhurst Emma Pankhurst Alexander Pankhurst Cecilia Pankhurst Hannah Pankhurst
