Looking for Seabrook/Osborn/ Seabrooks from Hemel Hempstead UK to Kent UK and Osborn familes of Kent

Journal by juliepenfold_70

My name is Julie Penfold (nee Osborn) I live in NZ but all my research is in UK at the moment.
I am researching the descendants of James Seabrook and Hester - James born 1763 in Hemel Hempstead Heartfordshire and in most of the census records in Kent - married to Hester ? described as a woman not of this parish.
I have traced many of the descendants but have reached a brick wall on who Hester might have been ie her maiden name and where she was born and who were the parents of James from Hemel Hempstead.
My seabrook side is my mother Kathleen Marjorie who at 90 years of age is still living.
My Osborn side is my father and although I have an extensive tree of the direct line back 1600 I cannot find the branches and twigs.His name was Spencer Robert Osborn B1920 but now deceased. He was one of 6 children and the family came from Sydenham Kent England.

Was your paternal grandmothers maiden name Yardley? If so the details that you have given are not exactly right. There is a Spencer Robert Osborn born 1920 Lewisham which is now London but at one time was Kent. With the surname of Osborn and mothers maiden name of Yardley: Spencer was a twin of Walter F 1920, Elsie H 1922, Arthur E S 1926,. There are others born in Lewisham but not with variations on the spelling of the surname

Sorry - Thatwas a typing error. Birthdate is 15th August 1920 for Spencer and Twin Walter. Mother Charlotte Yardley and other siblings Elsie and Lily, Arthur and Harry. Sometimes name variation of Osborn(e).
Many thanks for your comments. I am particularly interested in tracing living relations of my fathers brothers and sisters. I have birth certificates for Walter and Spencer which clearly state Sydenham Kent
