      Not only did this Martha have a brother Batchelor Roper, but Batchelor Roper and his wife, although "of Hollingbourne", were buried at Bredgar, with an age to confirm it was the one with a sister Martha i.e. the burial register confirms that the Batchelor was the one Martha refers to as her brother in her will

      Can only be 1818 or 1819 because her daugher Catherine is described as the wife of Joseph Copping, and they only married in April 1817.

    • There was a marriage of a Thomas Beacon to Martha Croft on 19 Nov 1786 at Bobbing (by banns) - was it this couple, Martha being a widow? 
      I'm now fairly sure it was. Martha's will shows her brother was a Roper, and a Martha Roper of Bredgar married William Craft (by licence) on 24 Oct 1773 of a William Craft to Martha Roper of Bredgar at Tunstall.
      Both Thomas and Martha were buried at Bobbing so they clearly had a link with that village.
