Joseph, a son of Joseph and Mary, was baptised in Stone on 31 July 1803. He married Dinah Relph of Appledore in Ebony on 12 March 1827 and they lived in Stone. Their children are thought to have been:

Adelaide died when she was only two days old and presumably Dinah died a few days later, as both were buried on 21 March 1841. Then on 8 August 1841 Joseph married Ann Stutely, a widow, in Stone and they had 2 more children:

died Q1 1843

Frances, however, was born several months after Joseph died. He was buried on 15 May 1843. Ann later had an illegitimate son William Walker Honisett in 1846 but he died when only 3 months old. Ann and her surviving daughter and step-daughters seem to have ended up in the workhouse at Tenterden which is where Mary died in 1847 and where Ann was recorded in 1851 with Frances.

Ann married William George in 1853 and in 1861 they were living in Tenterden and Ann’s daughter, Frances, was with them.

Of their children:

  • Amy was a servant at Hartfield Farm, Marde, in 1851.  
  • Lydia was a servant at Hazlewood Lodge Farm in 1851 and married William Elphee in Tenterden on 19 October 1856. They were living in Biddenden in 1861.
  • Frances was with her mother in Tenterden Workhouse in 1851. She married in 1867.
