View Full Version : RICHARDSON, MARSHALL, OWEN, and others
26-10-2004, 3:53 PM
As a new member, I am posting my interests in my home county:
I am researching the RICHARDSON family who moved to Ashford, Kent in the 1890s, coming from Lincolnshire in 1861 via Surrey and Middlesex. Some of the family also moved to Rainham, Kent
MARSHALL from Warehorne (near where I live), Woodchurch and Snargate - the family were also in Margate, NSW, Tottenham. Linked to this family are: LEVITT, CHASMAR, TROWELL, KINGSNORTH
OWEN from Stalisfield to Boughton-Under-Blean (approx 1840) then Ashford in 1920s. Linked to this family are: SIDDERS, BONES
PIDDUCK - all from anywhere, worldwide!
I would love to hear from anyone researching any of the above

As you're a new member, I'll forgive your choice of subject line (it was 'Kent Interests') -- we all have interests and this is specifically a Kent board.
Subject lines should always be written from others' perspectives, not your own. Their object is to make other people read your posting, not to remind you why you posted it!
I'll endeavour to change it to something more sensible in a moment.

Hello Margaret, See your message researching the Richardson family in Kent, and wondering if you could help. Looking for any information on a Leonard James Richardson who lived in Milton area near sittingbourne in 1919's his father was Joseph Richardson a Horse Keeper. Leonard married in December 1919 at St.Pauls church at Milton to a Mildred Ann Barley who is a relation of mine and wish to find out any information about them and any siblings they may have had. Just wondering if this Richardson tied in to yours. Many thanks, Karen

The names you mention do not feature in my Richardson family, sorry.
In 1901 in Ashford Kent, I have:
William Richardson, fruiterer and fishmonger;
Jonathan Hanson Richardson, Fishmonger (fried)
Thomas Richardson, Horsekeeper, groom, fishmonger
David Richardson, Fishmonger
Both William and Jonathan lived the rest of their lives in and around Ashford,
David went to Rainham and I am trying to find out what happened to Thomas.

Hello Margaret, Many thanks for the message. Shame that Your Richardson's do not have any connection with mine, it would have saved me alot of searching. It has took me years to find the mariage of Mildred Barley to Leonard Richardson, as well the marriage took place in Kent I'm not sure whether Leonard came from the Kent area or else where just going on what is on the marriage cert. Many thanks for the information. Karen.

Like Margaret Nash, I have been tracing the Richardson family from Lincolnshire down to Southwark, to Middlesex and out to Ashford, Kent. I am the grandson of Thomas Tilley Richardson.
Thomas Tilley R was born on 8/1/1874 and died on 26/2/1929 in London. I think I have identified him from the 1901 census as living in Ashford - although the place of birth as transcribed is wrong. Thomas appears to have joined several of his brothers who were fishmongers in Kent. He married my grandmother in 1915 in London. What happened between 1901 and 1915 is a family mystery.
The 1915 marriage certificate shows Thomas to have been a widower. The 1901 census records a wife Ellen (place of birth is unreadable, but possibly Stockbridge, Hants?). Vague family memory suggests the existence of a child - Rose?
I'd really appreciate any information on these missing years anyone could let me have or point me at. I'm more than happy to share the information I have on the pre and post-Ashford periods.

This sounds very promising. My Great Grandfather, William Richardson, was a fishmonger in Ashford and his brother Jonathan Hanson Richardson had a fried fish shop in the town. Their brother Thomas did have a daughter Rosa - I look forward to hearing from you and sharing information

I have a number of your great grandfather Walter Owen's belongings in my guardianship which I unearthed in the attic of my house in Ashford, and I'd like to return them to your family. They recently resurfaced because we were moving house and it was while searching online for information about the Owens that I came across your various forum posts. I learned that your great uncle Robert from Boughton was killed in the First World War and there is a framed letter from George V on behalf of the mother land that you might want back. Also there is a lot of Walter's sheet music from the 1870s, which I was playing on the piano the other day, still in alright condition considering the age. There are photographs as well. If you would like to discuss further and arrange a time for you to take these artefacts from long ago, please contact me!
P.S. I realise it has been several years since you last posted in this forum but I am hoping that you have not given up on your search! :crazy:

Hello Samantha - welcome to Brit-Gen,
Although still a member, Margaret has not visited the forum since last summer. However, if you click on her user name, a drop-dowm box will appear. One of the options is to send an email. I am sure that Margaret would be interested in hearing from you. :smile5:
