Witherden

From on Mon, 7 Feb 2005

Hello Elizabeth: I came across your webpage the other day while scanning the net for others who are interested in the Witherden name.
I believe your Thomas Witherden, father of Thomas (1830-1885) is the younger brother of my 2Xgreat-grandfather, John Sheppard Witherden, born 15 Oct 1789 in St Peter's parish, Margate, Kent.
Five or six years ago I corresponded with a Mrs. Lavinia Cronin of Whittlesea, Victoria and from that correspondence learned that we are distantly related through Thomas Washington Witherden. I mention only on the off-chance that you have also been in touch with her.
I would like to hear from you to confirm that my assessment of the relationship between the two persons mentioned in the second paragraph above. I would also be interested in learning when Thomas Witherden (1839-1885) left England for Australia and what he did for a living there.
I don't know if you have the following information on his father,Thomas but I will set out what I have:
Thomas Witherden, son of Robert and Sarah (nee Norwood) was born 11 Aug. 1789 in St Peter's parish, Broadstairs, Kent. and died 23 Jan 1869 in Broadstairs. He married Caroline Spratling (born, c. 1800, Sandwich, Kent; died 06 Mar 1884, Broadstairs), at St. Clemens, Sandwich on 31 May 1825.
I look forward to hearing from you. Cheers, Ed


Carolina Spratling Christening: 08 Oct 1797 at St Mary, Sandwich, Kent, England dau of Sarah and Joseph Spratling
