Or hiding with some strange name in 1881.

The last is William b. 1859 Faversham and I'm finding nothing by way of trees.

Closest fit for age:

Don't know how we will prove a connection between Peter the carpenter and Jonas.

This is the 3rd or 4th time I've looked at GANDONs and some time ago some info was found re indentures and gunsmiths.

1851
HO107 Piece 1611 Folio 309 Page 37

Thanks Geoff.

That means 2x Peter & Ann and at least 2x Jonas. One being a Master cooper in 1785.

And a Jonah.

And Liberty of the City - Peter son of Jonah - Citizen and Leather Seller of London ... Freedom Book ... was made free 9th November 1784 ? (Born 1757) ?
