There are about 486 with the Woodgate surname at WikiTree. To see them, you can go to the top right of the page and click on Find. Then take the Find menu down to Surnames. Enter the surname and the list should appear.

There are over 40 who are also named John Woodgate.

Yes, there are many Woodgates. I am trying to find a thread from Chiddingstone Woodgates to my ancestor in Tudeley, Thomas Woodgate born 1836.
Thank you.

Thank you. James George is my grandfather. I don't understand 'Chislehurst Street' - I don't think there is or was one in Bromley, but the family lived right on the border between Chislehurst and Bromley, at the Goods Yard at Chislehurst Station.

I want to go back from Thomas towards the Somerhill or Chiddingstone Woodgates, if there is a connection. Also, there were Woodgates at Pembury which I have not found, and a mysterious Clare L Woodgate who married a Somerhill Woodgate, William Francis Woodgate, in 1838.
Hi John

Thomas Daniel was my paternal great grandfather

Best Wishes

Mine, too, of course, so we are second cousins, since first cousins share a grandfather.  My grandfather was James George. There is a new Daniel in the tree, via three steps of the female line.

Hi, Monica!
My great grandad was Thomas Daniel (brother of James)  his Daughter Ivy was my Grandmother so I think that makes us 2nd cousins once removed

'Removed' applies to different generations, but we are of the same generation, sharing  GGF Thomas.

Apologies I thought your original message said that George James is your Grandfather Thomas Daniels brother. Thomas Daniel is my great Grandfather so does that not make me a generation below you?
Ah, you mean 'Thomas D 10'  Yes, 'James G 6' was my grandfather, so we are once removed.
