Blessed with rolling green hills dotted with apple, cherry, pear and plum orchards and miles of glittering coastline, it’s no wonder Kent is known as the Garden of England. Throw in a millennium’s worth of history, a dozen well-preserved castles and one of the UK’s most magnificent cathedrals and this sunny south-eastern county makes the ideal spot for an English escape.

Historic sites in Kent

Explore 1,400 years of history at Canterbury Cathedral, which is part of a Unesco World Heritage Site. Saint and martyr Thomas Beckett served as archbishop here until his murder in 1170, which sparked a wave of pilgrimages to the cathedral – a practice which served as the premise for Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales.

Pocahontas, the famous Native American woman who encountered the early settlers of Jamestown, Virginia – going on to marry John Rolfe and travel with him to England – is buried at St George’s Church in Gravesend. The Nave windows commemorate Pocahontas’s life, and her statue can be found in the churchyard.

Hever Castle was once owned by William Waldorf Astor, the richest man in the USA – but it’s best known for being the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, King Henry VIII’s ill-fated second wife. Leeds Castle was also used by the Tudor king for his first wife, Catherine of Aragon; 2019 marks its 900th anniversary. Today both castles are key family attractions, with falconry displays, maze gardens and more.

Ightham Mote is a Medieval manor house also previously owned by an American businessman. Charles Henry Robinson Jr bought the property in 1953. He later donated the house and its 500-acre estate to the National Trust. His crypt can be found near the Great Hall, and features the inscription ‘A Pilgrim Returned’ due to his ancestral links to the Mayflower Pilgrims.

Things to do in Kent

Ramble along the beautiful North Downs Way until you reach the iconic White Cliffs of Dover. On a clear day you might catch a glimpse of France, just 20.6 miles across the channel. The spectacular chalk cliffs have greeted countless travellers arriving in England over the years, and has been seared in the memories of the many who’ve left – from soldiers in the Second World War to Pilgrims en route to the New World.

For more coastal culture, swing by the seaside towns of Margate and Whitstable. The former is a charming resort with a retro feel, complete with an old-school amusement park, while the latter is known for its quirky shops and abundant oysters.

Best Restaurants in Kent

England’s sunny south is home to some of the UKs best wine producers. Take a tour of the Chapel Down or Hush House wineries to taste their creations. If beer is more your bag, try Shepherd Neame in Faversham – Britain’s oldest brewery. Their brews are served in over 300 pubs, including the Zetland Arms near Dover, situated on the edge of Kingsdown beach. For good old-fashioned fish and chips, make a beeline for The Smokehouse in Folkestone. Whitebait with garlic mayo, Kentish pies and buttermilk fried chicken also feature on the menu. Alternatively, opt for an unforgettable meal at the Michelin-starred Sportsman, near Whitstable.

I recently took a genetic test done on my biological ancentry. Most of my ancestors are from Ireland/Scotland. My surname is Johnson. I really don't much about the family name other than being told that much of my family is upper european, German, Swedish, Irish , English and Scottish. I would really appreciate any help that I could get to trace family farther back than just my great grandfather.

My 2nd great grandparents came from Ireland to the USA. do not know when/what port they immigrated to or when/where they were married, but the first census I find them in is as Thomas Williams and Mrs. 1860 Leavenworth Kansas. The Mrs. is Mary Fling b. 1825, 1830 or 1835 varies on census' and Thomas Williams either 1830 or 1834. First son was James born in 1855 Bloomington, Ill, Daughter Winifred b. 1857 and Charles Arthur my great grandfather 1858. The census' list them both as from Ireland, until 1930 my great grandfather lists his parents as from Northern Ireland. The only thing I know about Thomas Williams comes from the 1860 Federal Census taken in Leavenworth Kansas and the 1865 State Census taken in Leavenworth Kansas, I never find him again after that date. I have not located his immigration information or marrige information. Coincidentally there is a Thomas Williams and Anne Eliza Fling Williams in 1860 Bloomington, Illnois Census, they have a son Charles Edward, but dates and ages Do Not match and can't be in two places at one time. would love to learn where they were both from in Ireland.

The Williams name has a long history in Wales, but now DNA and some recorded history says their origin is from the Emerald Island. The Williams story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup B2] can trace their origins to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Williams surname origin is from Clan Domnaill [DNA Tribe R1b-L513, Subgroup B1] and relations who remain in Ireland take the modern surname (O’)Donnelly, McDonald and Donohue in Ireland.

Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin.

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Domnaill name is also found in Brittany, France. It is a very old name which appears in the 5th century Roman inscriptions as Dumnovellaunos in Brittany meaning “Deep Valour” equivalent to Irish Domhnaill. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Brown story begins in pre-history Ireland but relatives will then move to Wales where the family can be traced back to their Welsh tribe Cydifor Fawr. A descendant and many of his kin will then move to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

My name is Sally and I am looking for James Wilson. Actually the first Wilson in Ireland of our family came from Scotland about 1590 or so. I have a letter from a relative who says that in 1600 the Wilson in Ireland lost all three sons to drowning in the well on the farm in County Longford – just south of County Cavan. His first name is not known but the letter said that after those deaths, he moved north to County Cavan. Clearly the family remained in County Cavan for over 200 years. The earliest documented Wilson was John Wilson who was born about 1760 in County Cavan, Ireland. He had two sons - including William Wilson who was born in County Cavan, Ireland in 1790. He married Esther Coote (also from County Cavan) and they had 7 of their children born in Ireland. The nine of them then they made their way to Canada from Ireland – quite a trip. That was about 1840. (Their last child born in Ireland was born in October of 1839 and their next child was born in Ontario in 1843.) William and Esther settled in Cobourg, Ontario and then commenced to have 5 more kids – for a total of 12

He and his wife set up home in a small farm in the town land of Lisbane, Armagh (this farm is now owned by the Carmichael family). He also had a leather business and manufactured boots at the lower end of Thomas Street, Armagh. Alexander Wilson and his wife, Margaret, had six of a family, William, James, Alexander, Margaret, Eliza and Joseph. William emigrated to the Americas in his youth and was very little heard off.

'Wright' is still used in Scottish English in the original meaning of 'skilled woodworker'. The Incorporation of Wrights of the Trades House of Glasgow, and the Incorporation of Wrights and Masons of Edinburgh Trades retain the word in its original meaning in their role of promoting the woodworking trade. Wright is also an anglicised version of the Scots Gaelic clan name "MacIntyre" or "Mac an t-Saoir", meaning "son of the wright" (son of the carpenter). In Ireland, the native Gaelic Mac an Cheairt sept of County Mayo occasionally changed their name to Wright. This is a literal translation meaning, "son of the right or righteous".

We are from ADAMS of Aghacarnan, Magheragall and neighbouring Ballynacoy, Glenavy, County Antrim, Ireland... Methodists, buried in the Tullyrusk Graveyard at Dundrod, Crumlin. We have always presumed our Adams were of Scottish Plantation origin. However, after many decades research, we are surprised to find a large number of our Adams share DNA with the US Presidential Adams family. This family originates from Henry Adams 1583-1646 of Barton St David, Somerset, England and neighbouring Gloucestershire, who we believe fled religious persecution in 1638 for Massachusetts USA. If this DNA connection is correct and given migration was one direction towards America, this would suggest other close members of Henry Adams’ family must have left Somerset for Northern Ireland, perhaps via Scotland. Surprisingly, with everyone focusing in the great Irish diaspora, there appears little on the web regarding intra-UK family migration that brought many English and Scots to Northern Ireland’s shores in the first place. Consequently, we are interested in making contact with other genealogy enthusiasts, who might have evidence of Somerset Adams ending up in County Antrim, Ireland?

My great great grandfather was Gerald “Jerry” Green. I think he was born in Ireland around 1820. He came to the United States and settled in Houghton and Keweenaw counties in Michigan maybe around 1837. He and his wife were killed in mid 1860’s or early 1870. He was married and had three children. One was called Rose, she ended up being a teacher. One was called Abram or Abraham (my great grandfather), and there was another boy. Both boys were adopted after their parents deaths. I am thinking Rose may have been older because she was taken in by a family but not adopted. Does anyone have any information to this Green family.

According to our DNA tests (they change every few months with more info) Roberts is from Donegal, Ireland, and towns on the border of N. Ire. and Ireland. But it also shows Scottish. Pretty cool, this whole time I thought I was predominately Greek, but I'm a mutt from my mother's side and apparently we are not half greek, we have a lot of Balkan and E. European in us on my dad's (greek) side, my mother's side is the Roberts side, and anyway, it's interesting all the stuff on here but I think we can all agree on one thing, the name is broadly the UK. You cant nail it down to one town, that's just moronic, that's like trying to nail SMITH down to one location.

Although it is more probable that Robert's in Ireland are actually from Scotland, and arrived during the Plantation of Ulster. According to my DNA Scotland is were my paternal side came from. We are basically Robertson's.

Roberts (Roberson)

Being born Welsh and having Welsh blood on my maternal side, this is not correct for all Roberts families. Fixed surnames in Wales is a late development for the majority. The patronymic system meant that the son often took the first name of the father as last name of the son. So it was only from when Henry VIII decreed that fixed names should be used in Wales did fixed names started to became the norm. This took quite some time. Thus not all Roberts's even in Wales are related. Roberts is not only a Welsh name, but English Sottish and Irish. In England it's first recorded in the Doomsday book recorded in Latin as Filius Roberti (son of Robert) Of Oxford. Roberts's in Ireland were descended from Clan Colla. (O'Heart). In Sc

(Part 1 of 3) The Roberts name has a long history in Wales, but now DNA and some recorded history says their origin is from the Emerald Island. The Roberts story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup B2] can trace their origins to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Roberts surname origin is from Clan Domnaill [DNA Tribe R1b-L513, Subgroup B1] and relations who remain in Ireland take the modern surname (O’)Donnelly, McDonald and Donohue in Ireland.

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Domnaill name is also found in Brittany, France. It is a very old name which appears in the 5th century Roman inscriptions as Dumnovellaunos in Brittany meaning “Deep Valour” equivalent to Irish Domhnaill. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Roberts story begins in pre-history Ireland then moves to Wales where the family can be traced back to their Welsh tribe Cydifor Fawr. Many of his kin will then move to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

I would bd interested to hear from male Bailey’s who know their haplotype. It depends on how many male Bailey’s that today’s Baileys descend from. I assume, very few.

Another subject for another day.. Here we have one of ours that is held in such high regard by many who know not the truth and yet I feel she should know her way into your history books in association with the dangerous individuals who have always been hot blooded, The Ward Family. I do not deny that my bloodline comes from very.. well let's just say it shall we.. dangerous, murderous, and unscrupulous folk's that demanded their bloodline should survive but not only survive but should thrive.. and no Ward would hesitate to kill anyone who stood in the way of that one very important and very key idea behind the entire migration from Norman to begin with.. infamous is the name Ward for they were not trust worthy and liable to stick a blade in you instead of having to look at you.. yet nobody had the courage to say it to the face of a Ward did they, no they did not and this remains the way it is to this very day.. each branch of the forlorn family tree would have to move away from the other branches to keep from killing each other off.. sorry lot you see.. the curse of The Wards Forlorn Family Tree.. good ole Viking Blood and Personalities.. gotta love em or don't I don't care.. anyways, My Great by 8 grandmother was Nancy 'Nanyehi' Ward / Born 1738 CHOTA /Death between 1822 and 1824 there are some discrepancies upon the date of her death due to the fact that she went into hiding and started going by a different name.. now you will not find what I am about to tell you in any of the history books and archives but that is not a new thing now is it.. more often than not the way history is told is not the way it truly was.. #*Nanyehi was found to be a traitor in the end and marked for death by the Cherokee Nation*#.. (this should be obvious to anyone of any real intelligence upon reading the articles widely available across the internet concerning her traitorous ways) combined with the not so forgiving Cherokee People... Traitors, their wives and the children included,. were burned alive.. have a read and ask yourself if you really believe the Cherokees who would scalp you where you stand (scalp means to cut the flesh and hair from the head of a living person ) would permit such traitors to remain among them much less among the land of the living?!? I sincerely doubt she was able to hide her treacherous actions of a traitor for too long after the white children were born.. many times she gave up her people to the white man and sided with the white man, married the white man and gave birth to the white man's children and if not for her discrepancies (one who goes about) I would not be alive now to be writing this for you.. fortunately I am without an heir and this branch of the monsterous and monster filled Forlorn Ward Family Tree will die with me and be buried with my body and whatever blood is left in it and the world will be better for it.. The reign and terror of the monster slowly dies off and is written out of the history books to be forever swept under the carpet..

(Part 1 of 3) The Ward name can be found in the British Isles, but its origin according to DNA is from the north-west coast of the Emerald Island. The Ward story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup A1] can trace their origins to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Ward surname origin is from a Northern Ui Neill [R1b-L513] tribe. The Cenél Eoghan and the tribes of Donegal conquered much of Ulster (Derry and Tyrone).

(Part 2 of 3) Cenél Eoghan will expand across northern Ireland with their cousins Cenél Conaill and the Northern Ui Neill between 500-800 BCE. The clans of Finn Valley have the same DNA as people from Gwynedd in Brittany. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Ward story begins in pre-history Ireland then moves to Scotland as they form part of the Dalriada. Descendants of their tribe will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

(Part 1 of 3) The Cook name has a long history in the British Isles, but now DNA and some recorded history says their origin is from the Emerald Island. The Cook story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup B4] can trace their origins to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Cook surname origin is from Clan Domnaill [DNA Tribe R1b-L513, Subgroup B1] and relations who remain in Ireland take the modern surname (O’)Donnelly, McDonald and Donohue in Ireland.

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Domnaill name is also found in Brittany, France. It is a very old name which appears in the 5th century Roman inscriptions as Dumnovellaunos in Brittany meaning “Deep Valour” equivalent to Irish Domhnaill. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Cook story begins in pre-history Ireland then moves to Wales where the family can be traced back to their Welsh tribe Cydifor Fawr. An ancestor and many of his kin will then move to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

I descend from Henry Samson (Sampson), passenger on the Mayflower., 1620. He was the son of Martha Cooper (Cowper), daughter of Edmund Cooper [1542-1619] Henlow, Bedfordshire. I would be interested if Edmund comes from the Coopers of Derbyshire, England.

Hello. My great grandfather was born in Ireland between 1870 & 1890. From what my relatives told me it was in 1880. His name was Franklin Ruben Stevens. I believe he moved to South Africa in the 1920's. If I have any relative left in Ireland I would like to make contact with them please.

(Part 1 of 3) The Stevens name has a long history in the British Isles, but now DNA and some recorded history says its origin is from the south-west region of the Emerald Island. The Stevens story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup O2] can trace their beginnings to what is now County Kerry from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Stevens surname origin is possibly a branch of what will become the Dáirine [R1b-L513] who are found in south Ireland around 300 CE.

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Dáirine will join with the Dál Riata of north-east Ireland and invade Scotland around 500 CE. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Stevens story begins in pre-history Ireland but many of his descendants will then move to Kintyre, Scotland where they and other R1b-L513 members will form the Dalriada. This line and many of his kin will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.
