John Sheepwash – Pipemaker of Faversham

Some idle browsing led me to this interesting article from the Canterbury Times which focuses on the work of my Sheepwash ancestors:

The suggestion that the Sheepwash name was common around Faversham at Boughton, Graveney, Preston and Ospringe gives me another lead to follow, as I need to find definite evidence for some of the early family members.  And who were the  Sheepwashes who were fish and chip fryers?

I have been researching my family history for several years. I'm particularly interested in social history and enjoy learning about, and trying to understand the context of our ancestors' lives. From the mid 1800s onwards most of my direct ancestors lived and worked in London.
