  • Notes 
    • Christened on 16 October 1803, Emmery was the fourth child of John Milsted and Mary Nutt. Like his father, Emmery spent his life intimately connected to the seas, first as a master mariner, and in his later years, as a shipwright. He married twice and had twelve children. Sadly, though, four of those children died within a few days or months of their births. Two other children died around the time of their first birthdays.

      Emmery had firstly married Rebecca Ward, who was from another well-placed dredging family in Faversham. It was that union that produced ten of the children. Rebecca was a hearty soul producing all of her children within 15 years, amongst which were three sets of twins. This is a feat for the times. Most twins, along with their mother, typically did not live for very long following the birth and unfortunately, although Rebecca seemed to have sailed through her early pregnancies and deliveries, there was only one child of all of the twins that did survive - Edward, who was christened on 7 May 1832. Only four other of her children survived into adulthood: Sarah Ann, who married George Evernden, a dredger; John Ward; William; and Emery James. Rebecca lived for 6 years following the birth and death of her last set of twins in 1841, finally passing away herself on 11 January 1847 at the young age of 41 years.

      Emmery's second marriage produced two more children, only one of which is known to have survived - Henry.

      Although Emmery and his new wife should appear on the 1851 census in Faversham or Preston, I have not found an entry for them and I have not ventured farther afield to find them.
