  • Notes 
    • The following information was received from Adrienne Rosher, who is the descendant of Woldemar Ohme Kennett, a grandchild of Anne Judges and Gilbert William Kennett, and therefore a distant cousin to me through the Milsted ancestral line.

      Gilbert William Kennett was a post boy, working from the Ship Inn in Faversham from the time of the birth of his first son, John, in 1815 until sometime between 1825 and 1828. At that time, Gilbert became a hostler at that same inn. By 1830 Gilbert had become a publican.

      The Ship Inn was situated in Market Street, Faversham. A public pump stood in the passageway beside the house - this was known as St. Crispin's Well. This pub was the local posting station.

      Adrienne's assumption is that Gilbert and his family moved to Brompton, Gillingham sometime during the 1830s to take over management of the Red Lion pub there. The innkeepers list recorded him as a licensed victualler running that inn from 1839 to 1841 but as no licences exist to prove this, she suspects that he was actually running the Red Lion for longer than two years (In 1851 he was in Brompton and stated that he was a licensed victualler.

      Ann (nee Judges) died on 27 Aug 1840 aged 47 of Erinpelas which is apparently a very nasty sort of throat infection, which, today, would be cured by a course of antibiotic treatment. The family were then living at Brompton, near Gillingham.

      Gilbert married for a second time, Sarah Wood (nee Johnson) (she died 15 June 1854 at Gillingham). On the 1841 census Gilbert was recorded as living with Sarah, listed as his wife, and with Caroline, Mary, George and Henry - his children by Anne (nee Judges). Gilbert and Sarah Wood married at Gillingham parish church by licence on 30 August 1842!. Sarah was a widow. Gilbert gave his father's name as Thomas, a labourer. Gilbert was the landlord of the Golden Lion Pub in the High Street at Gillingham from 1838 until 1851.

      In 1851 Gilbert and Sarah were living at 54 High Street, Gillingham. He was 59 years old and a licenced victualler. His wife, Sarah, was 57. Living with them was a Dinah Wood, Gilbert's step-daughter.

      Gilbert died on 15 June 1854 at 40 Briton Street, Gillingham, aged 63 of general debility. The death was registered by his doctor.

      Sarah, Gilbert's second wife, died on 9 Jan 1857, again of general debility for many months. She was living at Pembroke Place, Chatham. The same doctor registered her death.
