Gun Green and Wenman family

23rd September 2017

Kim Tomlinson:

My husband's WENMAN family lived in Hawkhurst from 1778 until at least 1931. For some of that time they lived at Gun Green. We have just discovered that Gun Green is so called because there was a Gun Foundry there.

Can anyone tell us anything about the Gun Foundry? Does anyone have any links to the WENMAN family?

Anthea Remnant:

Hi RJ. I was amazed to get your message after so long! I am on Ancestry but have no idea how to find your tree name as there were over 3,000 trees! Is there a way to find yours easily? I would love to work out how your Chessons relate to mine. My son has also had the DNA test. If it's easier my email is Anthea

R J:

Hi Anthea. It's a late reply, but I also am a descendant of the Hawkhurst / Cranbrook Chessons. If you are on Ancestry, I am ancestryguy99. My tree has over 1000 people, all confirmed with good sources. I even have myself and mum DNA tested and there's another descendant from the Chessons confirmed by DNA matching over there. Would be great to hear from you and maybe collaborate and share information :)
