If you can supply information on any of the following or have sources that I am unlikely to have found, please get in touch:
Tovil Minute Book - The Minute Book of the Baptist Congregation meeting at a house called Byedews in Tovil near Maidstone. This book was mentioned in 'A History of Maidstone by J.M. Russell, 1881'. May be in the possession of descendants of the Pine family.
Papers relating to Hannah Wright/Petter of Sandhurst: dau of Joseph Wright of Maidstone (d.1703). Someone out there has her notebook and possibly other personal papers, and I would be very pleased to see it or them.
Joseph Wright's personal papers/manuscripts. These are thought to have descended via the Beech family of Sandhurst.
Any diary, deed or map relating to Sandhurst, pre 1850 and still in private hands.
I would be pleased to hear from descendants of the following families or characters-
Beech / Beach of Cranbrook or Sandhurst pre 1760, especially descendants who may have settled in America;
Francis Cornewell/Cornhill/Cornehill (known incorrectly as "Vicar of Marden") d. 1648;
Fowle of Sandhurst pre 1800;
Johnson of Maidstone, Tovil or vicinity: pre 1760;
Petter of Sandhurst pre 1800;
