05 MAR 1709 (= 1710) Pluckley,Kent,England The christening date is given in Old Style dating, and should be read in present day terms as 1710.Oliver-4952 16:59, 10 August 2017 (EDT)


28 January 1771 Kenardington, Kent, ENGLAND This date, taken from an online transcription of notes made in the churchyard, is incorrect. (This has now been corrected as per no. 39 in the source listed [1] ) I have examined the gravestone in situ at Kenardington (on 12th August 2017) and can confirm that the inscription of Henry's date of death is still legible as 1776.Oliver-4952 11:00, 13 August 2017 (EDT)


5 Feb 1776 Saint Mary's Church, Kenardington, Kent, England

If the date of death from the monumental inscription is read as 28th January 1776, agreeing with the burial date in the register, then the age of 65 at death matches precisely the christening date of 5 March 1709, read in modern terms as 1710.Oliver-4952 16:59, 10 August 2017 (EDT)


Henry was married twice, firstly to Elizabeth Downe at Kenardington on 15th May 1738. Following her death in 1747, he married secondly Elisabeth Moore at Lydd, Kent, on 17th November 1749.Oliver-4952 17:20, 10 August 2017 (EDT) Henry and his brother Thomas were both married at Kenardington on the same day.

Kingsnorth-10 and Kingsnorth-20 appear to represent the same person because: Henry Kingsnorth is known to have been married firstly to Elizabeth Downe at Kenardington in 1738 and secondly, following her death in 1747, to Elizabeth Moore at Lydd in 1749. He died at Kenardington in 1776, wrongly transcribed from his memorial as 1771. His baptism was recorded at Pluckley, Kent on 5th March 1709 Old Style, in modern terms 1710.
