Descendants of James* Wickenden


4. James* Wickenden

Possible burial date is 22 Feb 1846, age 86 years (making birth date1760) - from St. Nicholas, Rochester burial records which show Jamesliving in Rochester. Of note is that this James and the Elizabeth ofGillingham, who was buried at St. Nicholas, Rochester on 31 May 1838were not married. Brenda Marns checked with the civil registrationswhich showed this James and that Elizabeth not to be husband and wife.So, if this is "our" James, then the burial of Elizabeth ofGillingham cannot be "our" Elizabeth (Gardener). It can be one or theother (or neither) but not both. [Ken Watson, 2001]
