    I am looking for George chambers and his wife Ann ( maiden name unknown) George was a shipwright

    They had a son called Henry who immigrated to Australia in 1833 and died there in 1900 at the age of 88 yrs

    which makes henry born abt 1812. on his admittance to the resthome in 1887 he says his birthplace was Deptford Kent

    Further to my previous post. Deptford to Dartford is just a few miles along the river.

    The IGI only has christening records upto 1811/12 for both Deptford and Dartford so I cannot prove the connection.

    I Googled Deptford Parish Records and got a lot of possible sites, you might want to do this to try to progress further.

    There is a Edward Chambers wed to a Mary Bottle24 Feb 1772 Faversham,​ Kent,​ England Edmund could easily be transcribed as Edward.


    This fits in with the baptisms for the siblings of the George you mentioned as the first sibling was baptised 1774

    You may be interested in these Faversham baptisms, where the parents were Edmund and Mary CHAMBERS:
    Richard 3rd January 1773
    James 2nd October 1774
    George 26th October 1777
    Robert 13th December 1778

    These were from Parish Register transcriptions.

    These were the baptisms that I thought may be the children of the couple in #5 with Edmund maybe transcribed as Edward....right time frame and right place...

    Default Chambers

    Chambers

    Many thanks to the people who replied to my posting. My brick wall is crumbling, thanks to you all

    Now I need the birth or bapt of Henry Chambers born abt 1811-12, son of George and Ann,,,, If Henry is the son of George Chambers and Ann parkhurst , married 1800 in Dartford-- there should be some siblings somewhere I found a daughter of this couple, Mary born 1804. Thats all I can find

    I would also like to find the death and burial place of George and Ann
