Re: Kent Villages, Towns & Public Houses - History, Genealogy & Trade Directories

Interesting Julie....was driving my lorry through Kent today.........driving past old hop farms,mainly restored for holiday makers now,acres of orchards with fruit hanging trying to ripen in the sun...driving steadily through villages with little pubs with there thatched roofs and little gardens,i hope Kent keeps its tradition,its unspoilt in many areas and its a part of England that is totally under rated.

I like the old buildings and the country lanes in Kent, its one of my favourite counties. As progress takes over the lovely villages are getting swallowed up.

Hi Benny,

I'm Lee (not Leefer :D ) born and bred.
Hi Julie.

Wow. My 4xgreat grandmother was born in Lee in 1817 when it used to be in Kent. Louisa Britton. She was of Essex heritage as her mum and dad moved back there when she was about 15ish. They were shoemakers.
