Some time ago I was skim-reading “Custom and Conflict in a Wealden Village; Pluckley 1550-1700” a 1987 thesis by Neil Davie, and lo and behold, he mentioned one of my ancestors, Benet Butcher.
“He [Richard Yonge] was the only churchwarden serving between 1550 and 1618 to be involved with the courts in this way, though Benet, the wife of Thomas Waterman (a churchwarden in 1591) was accused of having
"lyved incontynently with wyllyam Golding now a jurnyman shomaker at Tenterden in 1575.”
Now I need to find out more about this John Golding because another ancestor Hannah Philpot from Pluckley married a Golding and moved to Lenham
It’s very cool what tiny genealogical tidbit you can sometimes find in an academic thesis.

Happy Birthday to my Olive Tree Genealogy Blog! Can you believe it is 19 years old?It all started when a friend invited me to post on his new blog and suggested I start my own blog. My response was "Huh? What's a blog?" Yep that's right. 19 years ago blogs were just starting up and not many people were aware of them.
It was February in Canada. It was cold and snowy and we Canadians always get the February blahs. So I started a blog. This blog. And I found I loved doing it!
My family always tell me I'm pretty talkative and here's proof: I've written almost 4000 blog posts since my blog was born in February 2003.
Out of curiousity I looked up what the most popular blog posts were since the start.
