quirk_cantwell , from Australia, has been a Family Tree Circles member since Feb 2007. is researching the following names: CANTWELL, MANN, DOOLEY and 15 other(s).
i live in gillingham kent uk,this is all called medway unitary authority now and takes in chatham,gillingham,rochester,strood etc. there are gouldings who still live in this area,i used to go to school with a christine goulding who tragically died recently a year after her son was murdered,so perhaps you have relations in this area?you can access the medway arkives to trace them. newington and upchurch are neighbouring villages which come under the authority of swale council if you need to check that area.
Thanks for the info on the Medway archives, I will certainly check it out. I dont know that I would be related to the Gouldings as it appears that our name remained Golding. I would imagine some would have stayed in the area though.
Such a sad story about Christine's family.
