Notes

 

Numbers 28 and 29 may have been the William Harvey and Sarah Green for whom banns were read at Eastry in 1796 (Eastry parish register abstract, Society of Genealogists, KE/R281). Sarah was perhaps the Sarah Harvey, widow, who married Thomas Johncock at Reculver in 1831 (Reculver parish register abstract, Society of Genealogists, KE/R282).

 

Numbers 30 and 31 were perhaps the John Sayer and Ann Barnett married at Chislet in 1793 (Chislet parish registers, Society of Genealogists, Kent Mf 283).
