Descendants of John MAY or STEVENS born 1730 in Shoreham, Kent

Third Generation


3. Jonathan MAY [scrapbook] (John MAY OR STEVENS , Jonathan ) was born 10 May 1761 in Chiddingstone Church and was christened 1 24 May 1761 in Chiddingstone, Kent. He was buried 2, 3 21 Apr 1819 in St Mary's Church, Chiddingstone, Kent.

Jonathan lived in this area 4 (photo taken 2006), Chiddingstone General Store & Post Office built about 1458. Map 5 showing village locations using a 2006 Map of Kent. Andrew, Drury & Herbert map 6  1769, Chiddingstone, Kent. where Jonathan was buried in 1820 7  and where Jonathan May & Sarah Jeffery were married in 1784, St Mary's Church Chiddingstone, Kent. He lived in this area 8 the shops opposite the Church (photo taken 2006), Chiddingstone High Street. The village pub 9, the Castle Inn, Chiddingstone (taken 2006).

Jonathan had 2 sets of possible parents - these are to only 2 John/Jonathan's in Kent born about 1761 (birth year from Jonathan's burial)

1/ John(*) May & Sarah Fisher of Farningham (*John's baptism shows him as Jo. May) - christened John as John in 1761 but he could have used Jonathan but further investigations show he had died before he reached marrying age.

2/ John Steevens or May and Mary Whale - possibly took the "or May" surname - investigations as to why have yet proved inconclusive.

Prior to Jonathan May's arrival in Chiddingstone there are no other records of the May family in Chiddingstone so they must have come from another village in the area and the only candidate I can find is the Stevens from Shoreham.

  I'm still researching so if you have anything to add or correct then
please email Baston Family Genealogy

Please mention the RIN number attached to a person's name as it is very difficult for me to know for which John, William, Thomas, Edward etc you wish to have more information.

Thank you
