  • Notes 
    • James Thomas, born 1818, married during February of 1840, Sarah Ruck, the daughter of the church sexton, John Ruck (see the famiily of Thomas Ruck and Elizabeth Broadbridge for more information). Like his father, James was a mariner and he and his wife lived close by his father on the east side of Abbey Street in Faversham.

      As of 1851 James was continuing in his occupation of dredger but the family, now including two children, had moved over to Conduit Row in the town. James and Sarah had had many children, twelve in all, but tragically most of them died during infancy. At the 1851 census their daughter, Sarah, was staying with her grandparents, John and Sarah Ruck.

      By 1861 James was employed as a sexton (an officer of the church charged with its' care and belongings and with bell-ringing and grave-digging duties). James, Sarah, son, William also then employed as an oyster dredger, and daughter, Agnes were living together on Church Lane. Daughter, Sarah, then aged 16 was visiting with a woman by the name of Harriet Lawes (Faversham, schedule #116). Harriet was a widow aged 57 years who had been born at Challock and Sarah was shown as being unmarried aged 16 years, born at Faversham.

      Although still living at 4 Church Lane in 1871, James' wife, Sarah, had died in the intervening years. He had remarried a woman from Canterbury by the name of Sophia. She was 14 years James' senior. James continued to work as a sexton of the church. Daughter, Agnes had married and was living in Selling with her husband, John Thursten. Sadly, James' son William had died the year previously. No further mention has been found of daughter, Sarah.

      James and Sophia, by 1881, had moved to Millhouse, Wandsworth, Surrey. It is entirely unknown what prompted the move. He was working as a road labourer while Sophia worked as a milliner. They also had two lodgers living with them but there appears to be no family connection.
