Surnames: Shepherd, Douse
I am currently researching the Shepherd family in Dartford, Kent.

I have found a William Benning who married in Dec 1878 possibly to an Elizabeth (NFD)

Their children were Thomas, Elizabeth, Harry, Claire, Amelia, Isabella, Edith and Edwin.

Edwin, born in 1888/89 went on to marry Cecilea/Cecelia Anne Douse.

I would be grateful for any further info you might have.

Message for Chris Lang.

I am researching Shepherd family in Dartford my Line may very well be connected to yours.

I have a definate Edwin Shepherd born 1833 Dartford given as Waterman on his marriage to Eliza Mills in Bexley 1853. Father John Shepherd a Waterman of Dartford. Mother Eleanor I am still looking into her surname but it may have been Cuckow. Edwin did have a Brother William on 1841 Census for Dartford born around 1827.

I have ordered data on John and Eleanor and this is awaited.

I'm very happy to share anything or correspond.

Best regards
