Sarah A Wood    30

This entry records Sarah Ann's birthplace, as Lympne, Kent.

Sarah Ann Horton was indeed christened 3 July 1870, Lympne, Kent the daughter of John Horton & Jane. Sarah Ann Horton's birth was registered Elham, Kent 2a/894 q June 1870 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2XWJ-9Q7) This is her in 1871 Census living in Lympne, Kent:
John Horton    32
Jane Horton    31
George Horton    7
James Horton    2
Ann Horton    11 Months

The same family are found in 1881, still living in Lympne, with Ann now listed as Sarah Ann Horton.

John Horton married Jane Amos 23 October 1859, Burmarsh, Kent. (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QJD2-YQ9W)

Hello Ron, I just wanted to add that my Mom said that she has a record of Sarah Ann's parents being noted in the family bible as John Horton and Jane Horton (Amos). The Amos name does not always seem to show up as Sarah's Mom's maiden name in other searches..  Just thought it may be interesting for you to know that your information matches ours.  thank you
